FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Aroma is generously hopped with a slight pine smell. Deep ruby/amber with a quick dissipating foam. Immense and full bodied with complex flavors of wheat, heavy caramel, molasses, brown sugar and oats. Booze is very well masked. Overall, this is absolutely fantastic. A genius winter ale with a hop dryness upfront and a very sweet finish leaving you a pleasant alcohol warmth. -Fish!

Consume 01.30.2017 as a single. Paid $1.29 for a 12floz bottle with August 3, 2016 as its bottling date. Appears a dark nut chestnut amber - check. Sweet, raisin-like aroma - check, but also a bit buttery and boozy. Hmmm...this is pretty smooth. Its not something that bombards my mouth. Medium-full bodied, and leathery sweet. I consider this worth drinking as a middle of the road American strong amber. It aint offensive.

Thanks altonbrownd for the bottle! Poured into a snifter showing well filtered caramel brown with quickly dissipating brown leather colored foam. The nose shows a lot of sweet malts. The palate is light bodied and moderately carbonated. Flavors of a lot of sweet malt with a light tea astringency finishing on a lightly sharp IPA bitterness.
