Wailing Wench poured into the tumbler with a deep copper hue and very good clarity. The head was a firm finger and a half of thick, dense tan colored foam. The glass was coated with a solid curtain of thick and sticky lace.
My initial impressions from the smell were of minerals and hard water. As it warmed the scent tended more toward herbal, grassy, citrus hops and a firm toasted caramel maltiness with faint phenolics in the background.
The taste was full of lightly toasted malt notes, caramel sweetness, organics with citric, spicy, grassy hops and an assertive bitterness. In the finish I found a pleasant dryness, a lingering bitterness and the faintest hint of peppery alcohol.
The body was medium and the carbonation was medium.
I originally planned to begin my review with a longwinded ode to the woman on the label. She is fair of skin, a fiery red haired beauty with bewitching blue eyes. Surely she is of Royal blood.
A knave such as me could scarcely hope to win the hand of so fair a maiden. Alas, I will go to the end of my days quenching my thirst with her Strong Ale and drinking in her beauty from afar.
Many thanks to dlee for this and many other fine beers and ales. You have a new friend indeed.

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.
