look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Cellared since purchase last March.

Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Hill Farmstead stemmed tulip.

a: Clear ruby with a finger thick offwhite head which receded to patchy surface foam and slight spotty lacing.

s: Dark ripe fruit.

t: Roasted malt and dark ripe fruit up front, followed by a significant hop bite which lingered at the back sides of the mouth. Slightly bitter finish. No alcohol throat burn at first but the 8.5 ABV becomes more noticeable.

m: Light to medium, good body, loads of carbonation tingle.

o: A powerful-tasting strong ale with barleywine-like fruitiness, very good "winter warmer."
