I drank this from a tulip glass.
It pours a cloudy reddish brown with a thin filmy off white head. Smells like a caramel candy with a hint of maple and fruity hop aroma. It tastes great, the abv is very well hidden, I would never guess this was 11.2%. The taste is really sweet with caramel and a slight woody flavor followed by juicy piney hops and a nice warmth. It is pretty thick but not bad for the abv, carbonation is low but good for the style and again it has a warming and dry finish. I really didn't think this would be as good as it was but I am very satisfied by this bottle.

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.
