3.7/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into my St. Bernardus chalice. NOTE: I always have trouble reviewing this style of beer 'to style', simply because the style is so varied.

Appearance: Pours a deep, clear, reddish-mahogany with two fingers of off-white head. The foam lingers for a long time, and leaves tons of lacing. Really great looking beer.

Smell: Lots of piney hops, backed with a little bit of citrus. The alcohol is definitely noticeable on the nose. A boozy, malty, honey sweetness in the background. It is a surprisingly unique scent.

Taste: Bitter hops is the initial taste, which quickly fades into a honey-bready malt sweetness. The taste isn't as complex as the aroma. The bready malt taste lingers on the tip of the tongue for awhile, but there's also a lingering bitter aftertaste in the back of the throat. Some hints of the alcohol.

Mouthfeel: A little bit thin, which I think detracts from the flavor a little bit.

Drinkability: Very easy to drink. This, to me, is much more like a DIPA than a strong ale. I realize that the strong ale category is somewhat of a catch-all, but this one lacked the complexity that characterizes most strong ales. That said, it was very enjoyable. The aroma was complex and unique, but in the end, the taste was good, but not great.
