A - It poured with a transparent amber hue and a 1-finger off white head.
S - A nice sweet toffee malt bill lies underneath a slightly biting hop profile, but overall, the nose is quite muted.
T - The sweet toffee and caramel malt bill dominate the palate up front followed by a sharp bitterness reminiscent of citrus pith.
M - Medium bodied and slightly creamy on the palate
O - I think this is a great example of a balanced strong ale. It does a great job of taking the ABV up a notch and increasing the malt/hop profile to match. I don't think this one will knock anyone's socks off, but it will certainly be a contender for their "go-to big beer."

On tap at the Dinosaur, Syracuse.
A: Heavy and dark with brown and red tints over an amber base. Nice thick head.
S: Thick malty deliciousness with a lot of smokey aromas.
T: Roasted malt and caramel followed by scotchlike smokiness and hops. Lacks any significant fruity or citrusy notes but is full bodied and hearty. A very good beer to start your meal.
M: Thick but crisp and hoppy on the nose. Quite drinkable with a high but not overpowering ABV of 8.0%.
O: Delicious and thick, rich and colorful. Great beer.

Dark reddish amber pour, thick finger of tan head, crazy wallpaper lace. Fades to an island and ring pretty quick with the lace dripping oily legs. Nice.
Lemony citrus and caramel, hints of herbal bitter in a light/medium strength aroma.
Simple taste just like the nose, but with some spicy alcohol in there too. Light strength taste, simple and balanced. A little different bitter in the end of sip than I am used to tasting. Kinda nice, but not great.
Worst feature of this beer. Low carb., low viscosity, ho hum finish, and not the cleanest linger either.
Thought this would be a better beer than it is, still not horrible, and one that is sure to taste good with some morels and bacon grilled cheese.
