Pours a deep, slightly hazy honey gold. White sudsy lacing for a head.
Smells of honey, molasses, biscuits and rich citrusy hops.
Honey and biscuit malt, rich and flavorful, with a mild bite of citrus hops.
Medium body with a mild fizzy carbonation on the tongue. Warms a bit going down.
A nice strong ale, goes down easy and has a good flavor. Very worth trying. Hides its strength pretty well until the mouthfeel where you really notice it.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a St Bernardus glass. Bottled on 19 April 2013.
A: No head. Murky, sickly yellow-brown. Muddy.
S: Blackstrap molasses. Crazy floral yeast.
T: Weird beer. It's oddly bitter, like unsweetened molasses. I suppose this is the birch syrup. This never really goes away. I'm not sure I like it. Wood. Earthy. Lingering bitterness.
M: Thinnish and sorta astringent.
O: I don't know how I feel about this.

Poured into a snifter. Pours a clear golden with a short lived white head and light visible carbonation. A lot going on with the aroma on this beer. Syrup and wood up front, but there is toffee, banana, sourdough bread, some earthiness, and light alcohol are all detected. Taste is very sweet with some light bitterness throughout. A touch of heat is detected on the finish. Mouthfeel is very thick and syrupy, and there is a moderate length finish of wood and toffee.
Overall: I think this was done well for what it is, and I think it is very complex. What I'm not sure about is how much I actually like it.

22oz bottle poured into a pair of large snifters. 12 AIP 0912 is the bottle code.
Looks nice -- first half is clear, golden with a small head. Second half is a bit cloudy. Smell is surprisingly lagery. Yeasty with a bit of a tang. Something unidentifiable but kinda fruity.
Taste is overly sweet, a little nutty, syrupy, Something funky, maybe banana. Surprisingly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel is light, smooth. Overall, it's not bad, but it's not great.

A honey gold, small head dissipates
S weird, hard to identify. Alcohol, honeysuckle, pepsin, unidentifiable fruit, barrel, whiskey as it warms
T. Oddly fluffy but high alcohol. Sweetish, but not cloying, somewhat like a triple-quad-hybrid. Vanilla, cream soda, floral nectar, bitter green tea.
M. Fluffy, smooth, creamy, awesome. Followed by lingering alcohol warmth
O. Very interesting, still not sure if I really like it. Appreciate it's step outside the lines. My opinion aside, very solid.
