Edited to add: From notes.
On draught at Pizza Joint in Augusta, GA for $3.25 a pint! Poured into a pint glass.
A: Dark copper in color with a super creamy two finger white head. Great head retention. Tons of lacing.
S: Strong of toasted malts. Sweet molasses aromas stand out. Smells of thick syrup. Citrusy hops.
T: Fantastic! Taste follows the nose. Sweet toasted malts. Subtle hop bittering comes through the maltiness but is nowhere near as hoppy as the name would suggest. Surprisingly the alcohol is well hidden for an 8.3% beer.
M: Medium mouthfeel. Smooth and slightly creamy but not syrupy. Moderate carbonation.
O: Best high gravity amber I have had to date. Decent drinkability. I don't think I could have more than two or three but at 8.30% I shouldn't... Be sure to go out and get this one.
Serving type: on-tap
