4.05/5  rDev -2.6%

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a stemmed La Fin Du Monde glass.

The color is a dark amber/maroon with a finger and a half foamy off-white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.

The smell is hoppy with some interesting malt background. There is some interesting fruity aromas that come out in big beers like this. An orange and grapefruit aroma that is sweet and sour at the same time.

The taste is so sweet with a malty flavor I have to stop in my tracks and pry the different flavors apart. There is a grapefruit flavor that is sweet ad sugary and is so sweet it takes on a sugary mass of flavor with some slight orange and other citrus flavors as it makes up the tent-pole of this beer. There is a sugary flavor that is holding in the hoppy bitterness and keeps it from taking over. This beers flavor is turned up to eleven.

The feel of this beer is big, there is a whole lot of beer here and it is nothing to toy with. Some truly great back-end flavors and a nice slap on the back from the ABV is there to say hello. A beer with a smooth feel and a big kick.
