Had chilled chez White

A: dark toffee; small head; decent lacing and good carbonation
S: very malty aroma
T: as advertised, very malty and sweet; it approximates to a barleywine style; the hops are distinctive and not frequently seen (or at least not to my knowledge): zythos and palisade

A very satisfying beer, and good as a closer.

A: Pours a very hazy deep amber in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle carbonation along the surface of the beer with some ruby red highlights. The beer has a three finger tall sudsy foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a few small patches of thick film with a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of sweet toasted caramel malts with slightly stronger aromas of citrus/grapefruit hops and some slightly lighter aromas of pine/resin hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of sweet toasted malts with caramel sweetness. There are slightly stronger flavors of citrus/grapefruit pith hops and lighter flavors of pine hops. Moderate amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Creamy and smooth with hints of dryness in the finish.

O: I bought this beer based on the name alone (how could I pass up a name like Fascist Pig?), the fact that it was available in can was a bonus. I didn't necessarily have high expectations but I was pretty impressed with the beer (and it is my first beer from this brewery). As an interesting aside, this beer poured from the can like it was a nitro-can but it did not have a widget inside of it - pretty interesting effect for a non-nitro beer. Fairly easy to drink and hides the alcohol well though the bitterness is a little biting for some folks.

A big thanks to woodychandler for yet another canned beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a auburn color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mlaty, a touch of fruits. Taste is malts, some hops, a mild bitterness, a touch of alcohol. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

A: Pours a chill-hazaed amber color with a fingers worth of head that lasts for a while and leaves some nice lacing

S: Very malty. Get some caramel and light toastiness. Some herbal and earthy hops in there as well

T: Malty all the way through. Get caramel, some very light spiciness, and sweetness. Finishes with a hint of herbal bitterness from the hops

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid amber with plenty of kick. This is for sure a malt-lovers amber, as there is very little hop presence in the way of all the malts. Decent price point given the abv, but still a little pricey at $10.49 for a 4-pack of pint cans
