A: A copper colored beer with great clarity. The head is made of long lasting, rocky tan foam that leaves a bit of lacing on the glass.
S: A moderately-strong malt aroma with moderate citrus hops that has a touch of tropical fruit. The malt has a light caramel character and a touch of that barley wine, malt complexity going on with undertones of chocolate and toast. There is a light floral alcohol note.
T: Moderately-strong hops bitterness with moderate caramel malt sweetness. There is a light bit of graininess to the malt flavor along with some chocolate and toasted bread flavors. There is a moderate amount of citrus hops flavor that is mostly a lemon-lime type of a flavor. The balance is fairly bitter with an of dry finish. A linger hops bitterness and citrus flavor in the aftertaste along with a touch of alcohol sweetness.
M: A warming beer with a medium body and moderately-strong carbonation. The alcohol warms you all the way down to you belly.
O: A great, got to, aggressively hopped beer that drinks like a fresh Americanized version of an Old Ale. This beer could hold it's own when paired with a spicy owing to how strong the flavors are or the bitterness could easily cut through a rich fatty dish. I'd enjoy this with pot roast of beef stew myself.
