readnig thsi bttole gvies em hadeacehs....

eyes...
once upon 11:39 eastern
just over 2 fingers o' foam from the pour
while I nodded, gently viewing
a ruby red hue through and through
with head that prolongs it's stay
and legs that last ever more

nose...
Ah, distinctly I remember, it was in the bleak November
garden state, hops from the left coast dominate
Eagerly I nearly quaffed till morrow; vainly I had sought to inhale in one swallow
For the caramel malt and radiant brew whom the gargoyle's name Lucky,
time to down some of this bastard's pluck
and strive to run over that guy "little bit of luck"

taste etc...
And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each wave of sip,
Thrilled me---filled me with fantastic hop bitterness felt before
So that now, to slow the gurgle of my glut, I stood repeating,
" 'Tis some stong ass hops I sip thee more,
Some more sips and another pour.
This it is, and and a bit more."

Presently my buzz grew stronger; hesitating then no longer
"Sir," said I, "or Bastard, truly your forgiveness I implore;
But the fact is, I was sipping, and so roughly you came rapping
And so bluntly you came tapping, tapping at my shoulder with a roar,
That I scarce was sure I read you." Here I opened wide my mouth;---
Wicked hops and silky mouth feel more.

And the Bastard, never relenting, still is stinging, still is lingering
On the palette like a burst of Dionysus just here by my Pentium 4;
And lucky's eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming.
And the desk light o'er him streaming throws the bomber's shadow across the floor;
And my gaze from under that shadow lies floating from an ABV over 8.4
The glass shall be lifted---nevermore! (until I run to the store to get some more)

verdict?
Somehow smoother than the arrogant one... who says there can be only one ? I say, make it a lucky... This is an unapologetic beer but not unapproachable. f'n yum.

Enjoy by January 13.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with a frothy khaki head that lingers.

Pine, resin, and grapefruit are supported by sweet burnt sugar and toasted bread in the aroma. Pine dominates. Dark fruit notes of prunes and fig add intrigue.

Flavor begins with burnt breadcrust and deeply caramelized sugar, with underlying grapefruit pith, herbal tea, and pine, finishing fairly dry and bitter. Oak and resin linger in the aftertaste.

Body is a little full, with low carbonation and moderate alcohol warmth.

Interesting combination of flavors, thought the burnt character dominates and is slightly unpleasant.
