Style | ABV
American Strong Ale |  9.10% ABV

Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
Some may call this a malty double IPA, some a hoppy barley wine. We prefer that it not be classified. We think of it, simply, as our strong winter ale. Intense hop aromatics and flavor (think pine, candied orange) blended with just enough malt sweetness to balance out the palate.

A: Lighter caramel brown in color. Moderately hazy. Forms a very large off-white head. Excellent retention. Copious lacing.

S: Vanilla, oak, caramel malts, mildly earthy. Grassy-earthy hops.

T: Taste starts off with a blend of woodiness and alcohol. Then turns slightly sweet. Notes of vanilla, oak and a heavy dose of spice along with toffee and caramel malt. Finish is mildly fusel.

M: Medium bodied. Fusel spice. Moderate bitterness. Alcoholic. Appropriate carbonation.

O: Was this beer aged on wood? Because it seems like it was. A rather hoppy Strong Ale, one with the alcohol front and center.
