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.

Poured from a 51 oz plastic bottle (yes you read that correctly. Pours murky gold with thin white head. The nose is sweet and grainy with notes of musty grapes. The taste is sugary sweet with light grain and more sweetness. Mouthfeel is well carbed with thick body. Overall, this brew is an experience... Not necessarily good.
