Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.
Pours a clear deep brown with a rocky white head. The head absolutely lasts forever and when it finally begins to settle, tons of lacing sticks to the sides of the glass.
Aroma is a little bit on the one dimensional side with lots of tropical citrus hops. There is a little bit of cocoa in the background giving this almost a bit of an American Black Ale character.
The flavor really has a lot more going on than the aroma. Tropical hops with a little bit of pine is quite prominent once again but there is much more in the way of cocoa and dark toasted malt. Some brown sugar along with a little bit of raisin and other dark fruits as well. There is a light tartness throughout but it doesn't really distract too much overall. Bitterness is moderate to high and lasts for awhile after the finish. Mouthfeel is a little on the watery side but stickyness is very light.
Overall, a pretty nice Strong Ale but i feel it could be better. A little more roast to add to the hops would be wonderful.

A- Deep caramel in color. Clear. A lager three finger head develops with a heavy pour. Moderate lacing
S- Bitter hops and roasted malts, vanilla bean, brown sugar. A sweet bready aroma comes through.
T- Sweet bready malts but not as much hop as the nose. Well balanced with a warming aftertaste.
M- Surprisingly light bodied for an imperial brown. Goes down easy.
O- Good not great but it may just be be. While well built and drinkable, to me the flavor seems a little off. This was my first taste of WTF and with no apparent date on the bottle, I don't know if its me or the brew. I'll have to give it another go.
