Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a rich, vibrant, dark caramel coloring with a thin, frothy, off-white head that starts as a low profile coat and settles into a ring on the surface. Aromas are robust, and very rich in caramel malts, smoky and roasted. Tropical fruit sweetness blends with a spiced and bitter hops character, giving an overall tangy, rich nose. Flavors are bold and robust. Holy shit, this one's got some body. Wow, this is a rich, smooth, thick brew in mouth. Roasted caramel backbone, with a blast of pepper and resiny hops, with a bitterness that is relentless, and builds as you drink. Pine pitch throughout, along with mango, pineapple, and grapefruit sweetness. The malt profile is profound, and continues to pack a punch with every sip. The spices build as you drink, and combined with the ABV, you are left with a nice warmth. Tangy, rich sweetness and spiced, resiny bitterness in the aftertaste. This beer stays with you long after each sip, and it is a sipper. This beer is a beast, and leans a bit towards the malt-bomb side, but with some very clear bitterness and heat.
