look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Type: 22 oz bomber
Glass: Snifter
Additional: 2013 release

Appearance: a brown color with good clarity. a couple fingers of a tannish head that leaves a lacing on the sides

Smell: not much discernable but certainly hops and sweet malts. wish i could pick more out

Taste: caramel malts, citrus hops, vanilla, alcohol. almost taste like it was aged in oak the flavors are so blended.

Mouthfeel: heavy. bitter and warming afterwards. a little bit of pleasant creaminess

Overall: the only big beer i got from three floyds during my trip to indiana but a winner. the flavor is complex and taste. I wish i could taste an aged one cause i think itd play out real nice. for the price its definitely a treat but if it was available where i live i might pick up one a year and let it go from there
