look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Date: 18 February 2011
Glass: Sierra Nevada XXX snifter
Type: 12fl oz bottle
Begins with a 2-finger head, slowly reduces to a 1-finger head, color is a brown-crimson, beige head, lacing is slightly runny. There is no bottle date, and I am not sure this an old bottle or not.
Aroma is a little bit soapy...reminds me of Saranac beers. Hop resins are bitter yet light in concentration. There are some notes of toasted malts present, and very little hop freshness. Taste of lightly toasted bitter malts, and only the slightest touch of caramel, with some butter (possible diacetyl?) and soapiness.
Hints of bitter pine come out in the aroma and taste as the beer descends to the wider portion of the snifter. The bitterness sticks to the palate and it's not super pleasant. This is a easy-drinking beer for 8.7% ABV, but there are more fun Victory beers available.
