From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #66 (July 2012):

LOOK: Weathered copper; clean, sizeable head

SMELL: Bready, caramel, cotton candy, medicinal, ripe plums, peppercorn, herbal, yeast, grassy

TASTE: Creamy, malty, peppery, bread crust, nutty, hay, ripe fruit, smooth, taffy, faintly phenolic, broth, chicory, alcohol; dry, long-lingering finish

Collaborations: Everyone is doing them these days. This one has no problem standing out, as the packaging is unique—a resealable pint can from Ball Corp. Oskar Blues Brewery & Sun King Brewing Co. came together and punched out a solid Belgo-American ale.

Serving type: can

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Had at Bar of Soap Asheville. Poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a dark amber, almost light brown, color with a 1/2 inch light tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Thick, semi-resilient lacing leaves a solid ring behind.

S- Lots of sweetness from the yeast, malt and rich Belgian candi sugar. Dark fruit notes plus some banana and spice.

T- Flavor is a lot of the same with a bunch of candi sugar providing a big sweetness. The alcohol is well-hidden but what you get in return is a nearly cloying sweetness. Notes of banana bread, spice and toffee.

M- Slightly thick and a bit sticky. Medium-low carbonation and a medium body.

O- Though I do like the fact that it's so strong yet easy to drink, it's a bit one-dimensional with the heavy handed sweetness and typical Belgian yeast character. Also I feel like the 16 oz serving is a bit much for a beer of this ABV.
