3.31/5  rDev -20.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

On tap at MacGregor's on East Avenue in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark amber color, with a one inch head, and some good lacing down the glass.

Smells like toasted bread, caramel, and blistering hops. I can tell this one will be intense.

I guess I'm not worthy, this is just too much of everything for me. Astringent, unpleasant grapefruit rind bitterness lingers on the palate forever. Lots of malt too, like burnt bread. A lot of alcohol burn too, this is just way too intense to be enjoyable.

Medium bodied, slightly creamy mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

I'm not worthy.

Serving type: on-tap
