3.83/5 rDev -10.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
A - Cloudy Brown color served from a tap from a keg. Dont know if it was cask conditioned but definately had those qualities. Head and lacing was minimal.
S - Surprisingly not as much going on as I would have expected. Definate piney hops and a pleasantly not overpowering alcohol aroma.
T - Again not as overpowering for 10% as I thought. The aromas were pleasant in the taste. The alcohol was more dominant, especially after eating it after fish.
M and D - Way higher than anticipated, mouthfeel was great with light carbonation and a surprisingly drinkable taste.
Serving type: on-tap

4.2/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
poured 22oz bottle into chalice. Dated 9/16/13
A - Dark amber with 1 finger eggshell head. Fair retention and no lacing.
S - Earthy hops, brown sugar, toffee, burnt caramel, and dark fruit. Scent is reminiscent of a barelywine.
T - Even at 6 months the hops are still very present. Earthy with citrus notes, they give off a bitterness. The malts come in with many different flavors of brown sugar, burnt caramel, toffee, and a little dark fruit. The finish has a nice bitterness to it.
M - Medium body with decent carbonation. Quite smooth with a barleywine like feel.
O - Big and bold this one can be drank fresh with huge hop notes or aged to make it more mellow and sweet.
Serving type: bottle
