4.22/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
2009 release. Poured from a bomber into a pint glass.
Appearance: Pours an almost opaque dark brown with hints of ruby and a fluffy tan 2-3 finger head. Very nice lacing throughout.
Smell: Very nice mixture of pine, citrus, caramel, dried fruits and malts.
Taste: Sweet malt flavor up front followed by a very nice hoppy bitterness. Aftertaste is mostly and grapefruit and pine.
Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with very light carbonation. Very smooth from the beginning. There is a definite alcohol bite at the finish.
Drinkability: Excellent drinkability despite the very high ABV. This is one to savor. It gets better as it warms and also gives you a nice warming sensation. I'd recommend stopping after 1 bomber if you know what is best for you.
Overall: Excellent beer overall. I would highly recommend trying this. This is one monster of a beer. One of the best I've had in a while.
Serving type: bottle
