12 fl. oz. bottle poured into snifter.
A: Pours with a fingers width off-white head. Copper colored body with ruby red highlights. Very nice clarity.
S: Sugary sweet, piney hops. Not much complexity.
T: Tons of piney hops in the front but seem to give way to the high amount of sugary sweet malts, caramel and molasses flavors. The malts linger in the aftertaste as well a hop bitterness. Not too hot, but could hide the alcohol better. Very similar to a Barleywine.
M/D: Full bodied. Carbonation leaves soft bite on the tongue and accompanies the alcohol on the way down. Definitely a sipping beer, 1 is plenty!
Pretty good, but I expected something a bit better.
Serving type: bottle
