3.9/5  rDev -3%

Appearance: Deep amber with a minimal, light-tan head.

Smell: Sweet quality, fruit juice with underlying hops.

Taste: powerful sweet character dominates. The hops peek through just enough to be interesting.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a syrupy quality. Leaves a sticky film on everything it touches.

Drinkability: Very flavorful and unique. It reminded me of a light Barley Wine.

A: pours a nice looking reddish brown with a finger of off white head and good retention into a dogfish head snifter. nice lacing throughout the drink as well
S: smells of piney hops and citrus. not a lot of sweetness but a little bit of herbal hops as well
T: nice caramel and brown sugar sweetness up front with some slightly piney hops swallow brings a nice oily pine hop with some equally tasty residual sweetness
M: medium carb and a slightly heavy mouthfeel but not excessively viscous
O: pretty tasty beer. good flavors and some nice complexity. I like sucks a little more but this beer is pretty tasty. The hoppiness surprised me but it keeps the sweetness in check.

T - Sweet as a M)($%*(^$%($#^%. Wow. Lots of sugar. Lots of alcohol.

M - Oily, medium bodied, and fairly high carbonation.

O - Good, but I can only drink about half of one of these and I am done. Too sweet and strong
