look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A- Pours a nice dark amber with 1 finger head that left lacing in every corner of my glass.
S- Wow, loads of pine/slightly citrus hops with tons of caramel malt on the finish, really great smell.
T- Huge amounts of sticky caramel malt, tastes like some caramel chews, followed by huge amounts of bitter piney hops as it warms it produces a slightly piney/citrusy bitterness and a very warm finish.
M- HEAVY... Very syrupy beer that is rather cloying with how thick it is. I like balanced beers but I think that this is too sweet for me, the hops are there but the caramel taste just hangs around.
D- Hard to drink this beer, at almost 11% it is rather apparent in the heat of this beer and too viscous, drop this beer down due to those facts.
