Pours into a pint glass a deep garnet color with a half finger off white head atop,good color clarity in the pour.Smells of roast,earth,tea leaves,and some gummy fruitiness,and more leafy hops are there and linger but don't play a big role,somewhat of a different aroma for the style.Roasty and earthy up front with some molasses-like sweetness coming into play,mild orange peel and leafy tea hop flavors in the finish.There is a bunch of different stuff going on in this beer,Iam still trying to grasp everything.Not bad but unlike any ABA I have had.

Heavy and hard to drink. Gives a great style a bad name.
