Poured a dark ruby/amber color with a large off white head. The head shrunk down to a 1/2 inch and lingered for a good while. Smell was good some citrus but mostly a malt/toasted malt smell. For some reason I was expecting a hops blast from this beer, but I must have missed something somewhere. The predominant taste is malt, but not a chalky strong malt taste. This is a somewhat sweet caramel malt taste, very balanced and very nice. The mouthfeel is rich and smooth. I did not taste any raw alcohol at all. Left some moderate lacing on the glass. Knowing this was 7.2 ABV and served in a 22 oz. bottle, I would respect this and drink slowly. However I would have no problem accepting a second one. (48 oz of anything is about my sessions limit anyway) This is a very drinkable and tasty beer.
