Enjoyed this 12 oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a copper hue with a thin white head that quickly dissipates leaving a decent trail and semi wispy lace.

S: Sweet malty aroma – almost barely-wine like with a decent hoppy profile.

T: Strong alcoholic malty flavor – again reminding me of a barley wine, slightly hoppy – but more malt than hops.

M: Heavy body and medium carbonation

O: Decent brew – more balanced to the malt than hops

Poured a cloudy amber-orange color with a very thick, chunky head; lots of particulates (yeast and/or hops?). Very malty, very caramel-like aroma interspersed with hints of orange and other citrus notes. Rich and smooth combo of chewy malts and pleasant hop bittering; underlying alcohol burn. Clean mouthfeel, medium bodied, dry finish.

Another blockbuster brew from northern Europe. Pretty nicely balanced yet still sporting a distinctive hop sharpness and bite. The high ABV blends nicely with the malt and hops. Want to try a hardcore, hoppy ale? This one will let you know what can be done with packing in the hops...I wouldn't consider this a truly standout example of big, hoppy beers, but it ain't no slouch, either...
