12oz bottle into a tulip
no bottling dates but assuming this is the latest vintage

A: Pours a clear dark copper with 2 fingers width of tan colored head. Head has good retention and leaves tons of lacing. Beautiful beer.

S: Lots of sweet malts, mainly caramel and candied sugar. Sweetness is accompanied by hop notes; citrus, piney, and even a bit of tropical fruits.

T: Follows the nose, except hop notes more present. Significant bitterness, piney and a bit of citrus rind. There is a pretty prominent boozy component as well, but I like it. Some candied sugar noted, but not as much sweetness at the nose.

M/D: Full bodied, maybe a touch syrupy, appropriate carbonation, booze is noticeable but its not hot. Drinkability is pretty good, all things considered.

O: Overall, a tasty beer, and for the price and availability I will almost certainly be drinking this one again in the future.
