3.1/5 rDev -24.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Poured from a standard pressure-cap 12oz bottle into a tulip glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Batch 88. 10% ABV confirmed. Reviewed live.
A- Ridiculous head. Six-fingers thick of off-white creamy bubbles. Hazy orange-brown body with aggressive carbonation. Long retention, forms a mound of head in the middle. Fluffy, airy lacing.
S- Very fruity. Tropical fruit tones. I'm getting guava, pineapple and passion fruit. Fruity and floral hops. Some boozy notes to reflect the high ABV.
T- Bitter and boozy. Alcoholic esters, tropical fruits.
M- Creamy and warm feeling with a boozy after feel. Bone dry.
O- Not as good as the reputation would have me believe. Not impressed.

3.95/5 rDev -3.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Batch 90, poured into a snifter
A- slow pour produces a hazy golden color with lots of sediment floating around, big fizzy and foamy white head that retains long after the pour, leaving some sticky lace behind
S- sweet candied berries with notes of raisins, flowery and herbal hop aromas lead to notes of spiced cider and apple skin. It closes with some peppery rye and a honey-like sweetness. Aromas seem to open up more as it rules
T- sweet candied fruit with hints of brown sugar up front, red apples and grape skin, herbal hop notes with a peppery spice from the rye, a hint of alcohol and sugar on the finish
M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a smooth and warming finish
O- good mix of spicy and sweet, a slow sipper that still has a bit of heat to it
