On tap at Green Flash Brewing Company in San Diego, CA.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thin rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, fruits, and alcohol. Taste is much the same with a fruity flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but nothing all that exciting really.

Dark orange ruby yet clear in color, a nice off white head that leaves some very sticky lacing.

Smell isn't too out there, caramel, sweetness with a touch of bread notes.

Tastes fantastic, hits you with those caramel almost werthers original candy notes that transitions into a subtle rum like flavor halfway through. The sweetness isn't overpowering and definitely hides the abv. There's a slight hop touch on the sides of my tongue at the end but I definitely wouldn't say it's bitter. This to me would almost be a dessert beer since its sweet yet balanced.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and fairly viscous which helps bring out the sweeter notes in my opinion.

Overall I do wish I could have this again.. A fantastic strong ale.
