22oz, 2005 edition
Pours a dark reddish color with a head of tan bubbles that fades quickly. Aroma is on the sweet side, vary malty with only a hint of citrus hops. Taster follows suit with a wonderful balance(did I say balanced???) of caramel candy malts and hop bitterness. Actually, the malt reminds me of some of the better English style barleywines. Hop bitterness is there for balance and in the aftertaste. Alcohol presence is noted, but not as intense as you may think. Not what I expected, but a great beer.
