A: Clear and dark red with a slightly tan head. 2-fingers, slowly edging down to half a finger, and holding steady. Great looking beer.
S: This one is very aromatic, especially when pouring. Sticky brown sugar, dark fruit abound, a lot of alcohol burn. This is a serious beer.
T: Nice hoppy flavor with lots of dark fruit backing, some spiciness. Wow - the bitterness really kicks in after swallowing. Alcohol is very present, but acceptable. Slight smokiness in the aftertaste (just barely).
M: Feels good in the mouth. Kinda chewy, a little astringent, great carbonation.
D: Drinks well, but not for the faint of mouth. Not a good first beer to try!

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
