Purchased this one solely on the recommends of BA. Holymuthapusbucket! Found in a 22 oz bottle at Grassroots in Riverside, Jax.
A: Pours a heady dark malty ruby with a good three finger foam head, slowly dissipating with a huge amount of lacing and cling.
S: Smells of alcohol and pine citrus notes. Orange zest, clove and coriander.
T: OMFG, explodes on the tongue with strong astringent alcohol and pine hops, burnt caramel sugars and citrus with a biscuity, malty finish. Very tasty.
M: Chewy and rich. Full bodied doesn't begin to cover it. Very fine carbonation and goes down easily.
D: Smacks your butt due to the high alcohol content. It's delicous, not overly bitter, and imminently drinkable but very strong. Respect this brew, or it'll git ya.

Served on tap in a 14oz glass at Heartbreakers in Chaska.
Great beer, who's 2013 edition is far better than some of the recent Enjoy bys. In a beer this strong, you sometimes worry that the alcohol content will take over the taste profile. That is definitely not the case here.
