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...

Poured from tap into 10oz glass at Mugs in Brooklyn. Hazy golden almost turning slightly orange color with a finger of white head. Smell is piney grapefruit hops, but big malty nose. Taste is of serious hop - seems like a big IBU number here, but its almost muted by an aggressive malt bill. Very bready - almost Alt-like. Its a very easy drinker especially for the abv. Overall, this is a rollercoaster for me...looks ok, smells amazing, taste is ok, easy drinker...while its a good brew, I just dont think id ever get again ($$$).

Serving type: on-tap
