look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark copper with a fine white head leaves a crinkly white lace as I consume the beer. The beer smells of thick hops, piney, green & resinous. Also, there sneaks in some caramel malt notes. The beer is smooth across the tongue with lots of malt viscosity. Then the hops kick in, grassy and fresh hay like green meadows, then moving to darker, woodsy pine hops that stick to your gums and teeth. The hops stick around well after the beer is down the gullet leaving a resinous and dry tart feeling in th emouth. This beer is big, and packs a wallop. A bottle full of tasty beer, can't see me putting away more that 1 of these in an evening though.

3.99/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-a ruby caramel color with a thin layer of cream head that disappears quickly to leave a layer of lace

S-caramel and toffee, rum soaked raisins, the hops become more present as the beer warms. Big pine and citrus presence.

T-much more hops in the taste than the smell. Caramel malt, raisins and pine and citrus hop bitterness. I can't believe this is 12%...

M-full body, reminds me a bit of a barleywine, light to moderate carbonation, pretty smooth for such a big beer

Overall a very big beer, not too sweet, good bitterness, and no alcohol burn.
