Poured into a tulip glass. Color was a very clear yellow, had a small head that dissipated in less than a minute.

Slightly bready smell, taste was somewhat bitter and ultimately unredeeming. This beer, even with a high ABV is pretty disappointing. Large bottle does well for sharing (if you're into that thing). Not really worth the time.

From the 25 fl. oz. bottle. It's old I think. Stamped: 290812-290813. Sampled on 7/11/14.

It pours your basic pale yellow with a fizzy white head, Good clarity. Busy carbonation.

Aroma: Not much excitement here, Russian malts, cardboard, cream, cardboard, but clean crisp hops.

The body is light to medium and somewhat on the smooth side.

Taste: Well, nothing thrilling here. Toasted biscuit malts. sweet caramel, some hop notes but generally pretty boring, Definitely not the kind of "strong ale" I prefer to drink. Although I do feel like listening to to Anya Muzafaroza "Music of the Rain" as I drink it.
