Brown Shugga in a snifta... at cellar temperature.
The color's a transparent cross between ruby, mahogany, and copper hues, and the head is a full two fingers of off-white foam.
A sniff of this stuff provides a killer set of scents that work beautifully together. First of all, it has my favorite kind of hops smell: that dank, kinda spicy note that I only get from certain American barleywines and DIPAs. Add to this a mix of lemon, orange, and fresh pine, rounded off with some caramel, and that just about describes this awesome aroma. If this beer were a bread, it would be a rich Christmas bread infused with citrus zest, candied lemon and orange, and perhaps studded with currents.
It tastes kind of like the result of someone throwing some hops and pine needles in a vat and stewing them in citrus juices and caramel (or maybe adding brown sugar, hehe). Spicy hop flavor, zesty citrus, bitter and resinous pine, and sweet breadiness deliver some serious goods, in that order.
The feel is full, just like the flavor.
Yeah. Really awesome stuff.
