3.98/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

This is a 2005 edition that I had cellared away. Pours a dark ruddy brown that is translucent at the edges. Foam was tightly bubbled but only held up for a minute to two. The nose came roaring out of the bottle and smacked me in the olfactory nerves. This beer screams hops and malt...strong ale indeed. The taste starts off appropriately enough as very malty but is quickly overtaken by the citrusy bitter hops. Everything about this beer is assertive, even the label. The mouthfeel was oily but full. This is a big beer with a big body. The drinkability suffers from the overpowering flavors and the high ABV. I was belching hops far into the wee small hours of the morning. Perhaps I'm just not worthy.
