22oz bomber into pint glass. Another strong delivery from Southern Tier.
A = Honey colored, slightly cloudy. Little head, lacing, or carbonation.
S = Plum sweetness, floral and hops.
T = Crisp and clean throughout. Dark fruit up front followed by citrus and slightly piney hops. Well balanced with maltiness throughout.
M = Feels solid. Satisfying on a cold rainy day.
D = Caution, sharp turn ahead! Deceptive for a 10%.
Really enjoyed this. I'm a fan of this style beer and BackBurner did me right.

This is good stuff. Cool color - HTML #43104 or so, transparency 95.
Minute foam that follows the beer to the bottom of the glass.
I eat barley in soup sometimes and I like it. I drink barley in beer sometimes and like it and this is one of the best beers with barley in it so far. So I really like it. You should get some.
This is strong but doesn't taste strong. Get a girl two glasses and she'll like you afterwards.
Serving type: on-tap
