4/5 rDev -9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
22oz bottle poured into a Portsmouth goblet. Received in trade from rlcnmeyer - Thanks! I see no sign of a date or freshness code on the bottle.
A - Poured a hazy, pale orange with a one finger white head of intermingled large and small bubbles. Head fades after about a minute to a thin layer of bubbles distributed more or less evenly across the entire surface of the beer. Eventually fades leaving nice, thick lacing on the sides of the glass.
S - First smell yields large amounts of caramel and toffee-like malt - hints of molasses. Subtle floral hops come thru, but in a subdued way. Expected more hop aroma here.
T - Spicy hops overlaying thick malt base. Lots of caramel flavor blending nicely with the hop bitterness that is fighting thru the sweet malt. Some citrusy hop flavor balances nicely with the malts. Alcohol makes its presence known, not overwhelming, but definitely noticeable.
M - Mouthfeel is thick and smooth. Sweet malt coats the tongue and sides of the mouth. Carbonation is medium to a touch heavy. Leans towards being a sipping beer.
D - For a 9.5% beer, this is pretty quaffable. This 22 is going down quick and easy. This is a really enjoyable beer with big flavors and body, but goes down pretty easily. Everything blends well and makes this a really enjoyable big beer.
