The dreadnaught drill: 22 oz. bomber poured into an Arrogant Bastard pint glass...
A: Vigorous pour leaves me with a slightly cloudy amber-honey colored beer topped by a mountain of frothiness. The head soon settles to about a thin 1/4 inch, and thick sticky lacing coats the glass as i drink.
S: Wonderful bouquet of sweet, pale malts, citrus peel and abundant lupulins.
T: Sweet right up front, and it lingers for a moment. A tidalwave of intense tangerine goodness asserts itself dominately. Very nice. A bit of alcohol in the middle too. Somewhere then about now you get a dose of spicy hops, although it's not very aggressive it completes the experience and marks the finish, which is a long one...
M: Resiny and creamy, with noticeable carbonation and a slight alcohol burn. Very good.
D: I thought i could put this down easily, but it sneaks up on you. Just over halfway through my bomber i'm feeling it (but, i did precede it with a DFH 90 min.) Deceptively strong, and the bittering effect does tend to take over after awhile... probably couldn't realistically goe more than one deep given the size.
Give it a try.
