4.13/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

2003 edition tasted in May '04: opaque burnt sienna topped with a cake-like toffe colored head. sticky webs of cream colored lace coat the glass. huge malty aroma of pineapple, mangos, and crystallized sugar with a pine needle undertow. steady carbonation. thick and full bodied yet still quite zippy....an admirable acomplishment. massive screaming avalanche of malt flavor flexes its muscle. tropical fruit and crystal malt flavor dominate. spicy resinous hop bite in the end ties this package together. underlying piney hop flavor remains ever constant in the background. zero citrus character. alcohol stays hidden for the most part, but with the searing characteristics of this brew, that ABV is never far out of mind. the mouth stays coated with crystallized sugar and resinous hop flavor long after the glass has been put down.

massive and not for the weak of heart, this beer is well put together and managable for its sheer enormity. bucketloads of flavor. a must try for any big-beer lover.
