4.15/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Had on draft at Max's.

Pours a deep garnet with a small tannish head. Loads of lacing down the glass.

Smells similar to a hop profile of an IPA with strong citrus and pine hops, but is backed by a ridiculous amount of toffee and bread malt aroma.

Very complex. A bit of citrus up front. Heavy toffee malt with a little bit of a sugary sweetness. Finishes very sharply bitter and dry.

Chewy Creamy and just about perfect.

Always glad when I get this beer every winter. Incredibly bitter, but enough malt to balance it out very nicely.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

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.

Serving type: on-tap
