4.33/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

355ml bottle, served slightly chilled

It pours with a rich lively red hued amber body. Frothy nicotine stained head, lots of tight little bubbles on top forming
a creamy rich head.

Huge whiff of rich brandy alcohol on the nose, christmas pudding and alcohol soaked fruits. There's also a lovely citric hop character, lemon and orange rind and a little bit of muscavado sugar too. Sweet, syrupy malt character also

Smooth rich silky alcohol drenched fresh cascade hops. Caramel and toffee malt pushes back against a dry, quinine bitterness from the hops. A few tannins floating about in there too. A touch of fresh herbs and lavender in there too, permeated by a whack of crisp lasting bitterness on the finish. Little bit of alcohol on the breath but not in anyway overpowering, deceptively quaffable.

This has enough depth and flavour to stick around on your palette for an eternity, you'll have fresh dry hopped cascade breath till the cows eventually get their asses homeward. Its a pretty well balanced brew considering, the hops don't overpower things as the malt bill and alcohol ensure things stay in control.

while new to this rating system id descibe this beer in taste a lot like BJ's Brewmaster's Reserve Goliath Imperial Red Ale though really did like that beer while a bit hoppy the overall taste is great what can i say other then i was surprised by its taste i was honestly expecting to only taste the alcohol considering i mostly drink beers in the 4-6% range and this is 11.5 it went down easy flying dog made a local happy

4.3/5  rDev +10%
look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A - Dark orange. 1" head that lasts a few minutes, with some lacing.

S - Piney and aromatic.

T - A very well-balance ale. A little sweet, piney, herby, hoppy. ABV is well-hidden.

M - Not much carbonation, but it's a very smooth and mellow feel.

O - a nice ale, quite drinkable.
