3.53/5 rDev -10.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 2
Bright vibrant amber orange coloring with thick 1 finger head. Not the fattest head I have seen but it sure does linger. Smell is very biscuity and grainy that I assume is from the rye. Very sharp tropical sweetness in the nose much like a bag of dried fruits. Reminds me a bit of Apocalypse Cow. Almost too sweet in the nose but still pretty good. It is quite potent. Caramel tart sweetness underlinded by a particular sweetness. Actually the bitterness is heavier than expected from the reviews I read. Again I get that dried fruit quality that reminds me of dried apricots. There does seem to be quite a bit of alcohol burn as well. Not a bad beer but not something I will buy much of.
Note: My bottle says it is 8.5% Not sure if BA just misprinted or if there was a recipe change recently. This bottle is Vintage 2011.
