Appearance: Reddish brown or coppery color, transparent and swirls with carbonation. Three mm white head that lingers on the top.
Smell: At first smells like normal beer but a bit stronger, maybe a little like sour apple or some similar tart aroma.
Taste: First thing I notice is the alcohol which is a bit overpowering. After that I don't pick up much, maybe some very tart or almost sour apple like the smell.
Mouthfeel: Similar to taste the alcohol is the thing I notice most. Stings a bit at first and then feel that heat in the aftertaste. Other than that relatively light carbonation is noticeable.
Overall: I am Cigar City Brewing's biggest fan but this is not one of my particular favorites. The alcohol overpowers the rest of the beer and I had a hard time focusing on anything else. Understand that for the style to some extent, but still. I've had some 8-9% beers before, including those from CCB, disguised a little better.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Clear amber body. Small off-white head. Medium collar and some surface wisps.
Smell - Fruity but kinda chemically. Belgiany sweetness. Some nutty malts.
Taste - More caramel malt dominant, but it's got an intense chemical fruitiness. Bitter caramel malt. A little nutty. Belgian sugars.
Mouthfeel - Bitter. Medium body. Seems boozy.
Overall - Not a pleasant beer. The fruit flavors are not working.

This poured with an immensely filtered cognac color with a quickly fleeting head of fizzy bubbling.
The scent has a spearament like coolness with a bubblegum and clove aroma.
The flavor was interesting as my personal palate picked up some vinegar like tones to go along with sour Apple and some alcohol.
The feel was quite spritzy and effervescent.
I feel like this was simply not suited to my own taste and may be a very good example of the style, unfortunately I can't attest to it.
