Rich, hazy amber coloured body with a lighter copper glow, and a tall, but very fast-dying tan head, only a centimetre tall. Aroma of caramelised sugars, toffee, earth, metal, malt and a good deal of astringent notes throughout with a lot of sugars and some alcohol around as well. Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavour at first with a lot of caramelised sugars, some astringent and pungent funk and a lot of bitterness, mostly from malts, but a little from some bitter hops. Aftertaste shows a relatively robust flavour of caramel, toffee, earth, metal and a good deal of pitted fruits and a dose of funk at the end. Overall, a relatively well-balanced beer with a lot of caramel flavours, a nice sweetness, but a deep and astringent beer throughout that shows some funk at the tail end. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Foggy Bottom, Eye St NW), D.C. on 07-July-2017 for US$2,49 sampled at home in Washington on 27-October-2017. fooj (63) - Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2017
I hate that I am forced to write a comment, when all I want to do is rate the beer for my own reference. What happened to not having to integrate with ratebeer.com?

Moderately dark and heavy with a strong hop presence. Approaching high moderation, but not unpleasant.

translucent amber, thin white wisps, good lacing. Nose is slight sting in caramel, lightly burnt, some faint esters. Sweet body is more sugar, some caramel and nut, lightly sweet and fizzy trough the short end.
appearance: deep clear chestnut, with a finger of creamy light tan head that lasts forever. aroma: caramel, toffee, light brown sugar, vanilla, bright citrus and resin. taste: as the aroma indicates. finish: malty sweetness, light fruity notes, then the hop bitterness dries things out. notes: Palate is full-bodied. Solid ale, would drink again.
