22 oz. bottle courtesy of the frog. Much appreciated. You were right...I like!
Poured a clear, deep amber with a just a tiny hint of red. Nice, thick, two finger head. Very top of the head was made of very fine, creamy bubbles. A very fine looking beer.
It had a sweet smell, which I wasn't able to distinguish before the hops hit me. A bit floral, a bit fruity, but a nice, smooth, yet strong, hop aroma. This beer is excellent so far.
Smooth in the mouth, medium body. A bit of an artificial-feeling sweetness, but bitter in the back of the mouth, and around the edges of the tongue.
Tastes just as I'd expected thus far, having a sharp bitterness that makes the mouth water, but well complements the barely perceptible, sweet fruitiness. There seems to be a kind of smoky bourbon sort of taste hiding in there somewhere. Just satisfactory, I suppose. Nothing overly special here.
HOWEVER, as it warmed, this one changed quite a bit for me. A sweet caramel aroma was easily picked up, and the hop aroma became much more complimentary. The bitterness mostly faded, as well as that bourbon-type flavor, and even the fruitiness went away. What remained was a sweet roasted caramel flavor, awash with floral and herb-like hops, with just a bit of pepper spicing. It did still seem to have a saccharin-type bitterness, but the beer really became enjoyable. Pouring the second half was greatly anticipated, however it did ruin the pretty glass. This beer didn't lace, it left the glass completely coated. Pretty impressive.
This beer is pretty sticky for only having a medium body. And the CGI girl on the bottle is just a horrible piece of artwork. A hand drawn label would be much more attractive.

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.
