Dark amber appearance with moderate head. Smell is sweet and grainy, slightly herbal but overall nothing overpowering.
Taste is like very malty, almost tastes like coffee. Has a very good balance of hops with the malt. Has a light body, which is surprising for a beer this strong, with moderate carbonation. After taste is dry and spicy.
Overall this is an interesting beer, one of my favorites from Big Rock. It's easily drinkable with a good combination of flavors (watch out or you'll pound back a case). Would definitely recommend.

From the tap, pours nice amber with rich, creamy head that lasts a bit.
Smell is neutral, a bit of grains, but mild.
Light, balanced flavor. Caramel, make presence, a bit of bitter hops, some alcohol burn on the finish, but only mildly.
Easy to drink, light and crisp, clean finish.

341ml bottle poured into a 16oz pint glass.
A - Big frothy light tan head. The beer is a nice clean amber-red hue. Good head retention with some nice lacing.
S - Really nutty. Lots of peanuts and caramel malt. It's simple, but appealing. A nice hearty malty aroma.
T - Caramel malt and nutty character don't translate quite as well as I was hoping. A little metallic. Finishes with a slight hop astringency and alcohol warmth. A lot more nutty than expected, with a slight sweetness to it as well. Overall a nice malty profile, that's drinkable but not exceptional.
M - Light-to-medium carbonation, done fairly well. Body is about medium. Pretty smooth feel. Nice finish.
D - A nice easy drinking ale with a malty profile. Nothing exceptional, but it's something I could see myself trying again. Not too bad.
