Shared a 22 oz. bottle with C and R and my home tasting some beers. I've have this in my beer frig for a while and I've been waiting to taste it. Pours a brown copper color with a 1 1/2 finger head that lasts for a long time.

A: Pours a beautiful brown, copper color with a dark tan head about 1 1/2 fingers of head that is dark tan. It has beautiful lacing that covers the entire glass. This is perfect.

S: Smell of malt, citrus and some floral hops. Smell of alcohol is obvious.

T: Taste is really great: sweet malt, brown sugar, grapefruit and then other tastes of dark cherry and prune.

M: This is thick. Creamy with medium carbonation. It goes down good...maybe too good because that smell of alcohol is present and you know you should sip it. It's just so good.

O: I think this beer is fantastic! I would have is again and I would have it again! It really hits you, though, you know, that alcohol hits you. It was a wonderful experience.

If only every beer tasted this good! This beer was truly outstanding. The essay on this bottle did a better job explaining this beer than I ever could lol. There is so much flavor in this beer-it is ridiculous! A very layered and dark ale. Your tongue is having the time of its life as all of these flavors come out. A high ABV= a happy me. <3 Liquid arrogance <3
