This offering from Stone is almost clear with iridescent ruby red topped by a short-lived, half-inch, creamy almond head that leaves a fine coating of lace.

The strong, fresh pine sap of hops forecasts goodness in this Dogfish Head Snifter.

As expected, there is a nice, bitter punch that does not knock one’s teeth out. The flavors generally follow the nose, adding black tea and caramel. This one is not balanced, but who cares! The finish is medium in strength and length.

This strong ale has a medium body with alcohol as expected. It is quite dry, almost woolly, with fizzy carbonation.

Being a strong ale, this one makes a good sipping beer, leaving more than a hint of flavor and aroma long after each sip.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

On tap again at Uptown Brothers in Denver. Served in a schooner glass and was a red copper color with very good head retention. Absolutely loved the aroma with very vivid citrusy hop tones with a slighthint of vanilla and oak. Flavor upfront was again the citrus hops followed by some serious malt character. Not overly bitter or sweet, very good balance.

Very good beer. I plan on stocking up with a few bombers.

Serving type: on-tap
