On-tap at Yardhouse Fenway. 2011 vintage. Served in a goblet.
A- Dark mahogany brown, barely translucent, about three fingers of brownish off-white creamy head that slowly recedes, average to slightly above average carbonation. Tons of layered lacing.
S- Sweet smelling of bready malts, caramel, hops, and a little bit of pine + booze in the background. Definitely a little bit more aromatic then your average beer.
T- Sweet bready malts, caramel, followed by bitter hops that have a very slight piney taste. Lightly sweet boozey aftertaste.
M- A little bit creamy but fairly medium bodied, especially at the beginning before the head recedes. Average carbonation. Well-balanced. Smooth for 10.5% abv but not the smoothest 10.5% beer I've had- still a little bit of alcoholic burn going down, not bad though. Easily drinkable.
O- This was a very well done Ale that I wouldn't mind ordering again in the future. It had a nice sweetness that was balanced with a generous amount of hops. For 10.5% it was easily drinkable. In my opinion it was nothing spectacular, but definitely well done. I would recommend trying it. For $7/pint it wasn't too bad.
Serving type: on-tap
