Dark red ale. Maltyness fades to hop profile. Reminds me a little bit of Bigfoot barley wine w/o the sweetness. Creamy mouthfeel

Nice thick head that you can float a bottle cap on. Very strong malt smell and flavor, and heavy aftertaste. This is not a beer for beginners, nor the faint of heart. I am fairly new to the beer tasting scene, and this is very strong and defiantly way out of my league. I read the reviews and wanted to try it out. It's gonna be a while before I try this one again. But considering other reviews from the more experienced beer drinkers this is a great beer.

Loved this one! The bitterness is good & strong but not obnoxious or unnecessarily so. The malt profile is clean & balanced with a slight powdered sugar aftertaste. Some strong ales & barleywines are too sweet for my taste but this one pulls off the balance nicely.
