3.9/5 rDev +3.7%

I had this a couple times lately this time at Wegman's chilled in a tumber from the 12oz.
The color is medium brown with translucent clarity and thin white cap with fine bead thick lace collects in a film. The smell is strong with malt which also brings a light herbal and woody odor perhaps from the hops with mild alcohol in the background. The feel has thick body w/ moderate carbonation and spiced middle with subtle alcohol in the feel and a nice balance between malt with moderate lingering bitterness.
The flavor has a brown malt toasted quality with spiced yeast element that enhances the moderately bitter hop profile and there is a gentle English yeast with mineral quality that comes in near the finish with a slight alcohol warming. Overall a pretty decent strong ale - you get the English influence and it is pretty drinkable for the strength.

Poured bottle into glass. 8% abv.
Appearance- Transparent orange amber. Very clear with a white two finger head.
Smell- Malty with some citrus. Nothing too pronounced as far as aroma goes.
Taste- Great balance of sweetness and a bitter finish. Toasted malts with that classic bready sweetness. The roasted proflie blends nicely into the somewhat spicey finish.
Mouthfeel- Medium, with moderately retained carbonation.
Overall- Enjoyable to drink. I was surprised since the smell was nothing special. The taste was much more memorable. Decent complexity. The fact this was based off of Thomas Jefferson's ale recipe adds intrigue here. A great ale indeed!
