Poured from a bomber into a glass

L: Pours a pretty garnet color with a quickly-disappearing light tan head. Clear. No lacing.

S: Mild and malty. I get a little citrusy hops, but there's not much in the nose for me. But, to be fair, I really should be drinking this is a sniftner.

T: Bitter, piney hops right up front. Bit of vanilla. But hops are the players here.

F: Not too carbonated. Smooth and light on the tongue.

O: Some of the lovely things about the the individual brews get lost when mixed together. But, overall, a nice blend and a pleasant beer.

On tap at Yardhouse.
Dark red-brown with a durable head that left nice patterns of lacing on the glass.
Both the aroma and the flavor have depth and the flavor has admirable complexity. The aroma has pronounced caramel and vanilla notes and seems to hint that the flavor might disappoint but it does not. There are suggestions of oak, toffee, vanilla and dark fruits, but nothing to mask the solid malt base.

Really hoppy aroma.
This tastes really hoppy, malty and crisp. Sort of tastes like a very hoppy and dark hopageddon but a lot higher quality. I would prefer this over double bastard

This beer is over done and over rated. The mouth feel is best described as sticky and it leaves a sugar residue on the lips and pallet. If is not crisp as this style dictates

A - Pours a beautiful deep ruby color. Very clear. 2 fingers of a beige head which dissipates slowly and leaves some excellent lacing on the glass.

S - Rich caramel malts. Pine and earthy hops present. Very nice.

T - Caramel, toffee malt flavors up front. The hops are very earthy, then its like chewing on pine needles. Finishes bitter. Lovely. The alcohol is masked by all of the flavors.

M - Medium bodied with medium to medium-light carbonation.

O - Very good beer. Pleasant all the way around. The alcohol is hidden very well, so this becomes a dangerously drinkable beer for its strength. I would absolutely pick this one up again.
