Picked up a 6-pack from Zupans in PDX for $7.99, I've been wanting to try this one and the price was right.

A> Beautiful looking beer, maybe the best retention I've ever seen in a beer. The lacing just hangs out all over the place. I poured this beer 45 minutes ago and there's still a lot of lacing.... wow.

S> Really strong hops up front, a subtle sourness perhaps from the overwhelming assertiveness of the hops, and a the malt peeks through just a bit. Nice boquet.

T> Dark fruits (think fig), brown sugar/carmel, a bit of wood/smokiness, and then of course the hops which taste lively and exhibit flavors of tangerine and citrus. The hops are strong and certainly aren't content to stand in the background. This one has quite a unique flavor.

M> This beer is a treat for the mouth, thick from malt and the excess of resins from the hops. It just feels right in your mouth.

O> A fine winter ale that is clearly for lovers of craft brew. Indeed this is perhaps the best representation of an Oregon winter ale that I've had this year. The brewers do not hold back for this brew, you can tell that their focus was to make an amazing brew first and then worry about the cost second. It's a refreshing change of pace that makes for a truly enjoyable beer.

22 oz bottle from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market, in S.Salem. $3.99. Alc. is 7.0% Pours a dark slightly murky ruby/amber, lovely thick,bubbly tan head ( about half an inch). Aroma is very malty..dark chocolate,figs,slightly smokey with some resinous hop. The taste is similar to the aroma,with the hops leaving a nice after taste. Nice smooth mouthfeel makes this a quite drinkable strong ale.

Served from the bottle into a globed glass.

A- Poured a murky brown with soapy off-white head that dissipated instantly that left minimal lacing.

S- Strong and rich caramel malt, bready and toffee notes. Some alcohol in the nose. Slight hint of piney hops.

T- Very malt forward. Big caramel, brown sugar, toffee, sweetbread, and fig notes. Some dark cherry notes. Some floral and piney hops on the finish that leave a fair amount of bitterness on the finish.

M- Fuller bodied, soft carbonation, slightly sticky, and some alcohol warming. Drinks very easy and smooth for the ABV.

O- A very easy to drink American Strong Ale. Very malt forward with a nice hoppy finish and pretty complex.
