Two Brothers No. 15 beer of 15 beers for 15 years. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Half Acre snifter.

A- Pours a clear dark copper with a 2 finger light tan head. Small blotches and bubbles linger on the glass.

S- Caramel, brown sugar, citrus, dark fruits, and pine.

T- Sweet toasted malts, caramel, toffee, pineapple and citrus, brown sugar, with big pungent citrus and pine bitterness.

M- Medium body and carbonation. Has a nice creaminess.

O- 2 Bros. got this one right at least! Very nice balance of sweet and bitter citrus along with some brown sugar. It lists the beer at 24 ibu's, although it has a nice bitter punch it is no palate wrecker (not the beer) by any means.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 1

Appearance - cherry hues amber, nice top of manila foam, laces well.

Aroma - caramel and orange, reminds me of an aged dipa.

Taste - sweet up front, followed by a very harsh bitterness. Kind of makes me think this is infected, but there is still plenty of sweetness here. Very strange. Swallow is very bitter, dry, harsh, but with a backdrop of sweetness. Finishes warm with alcohol.

Mouthfeel - decent body, crisp.

Overall - bad flavor after the initial sweetness has me considering the drain on this one, a rarity in this house. Maybe a fresher sample would fare better, I'll keep my eyes open and re-evaluate if I get a chance.

This big beer is on the darkest side of the spectrum, well beyond amber at a dark brownish red, bright despite its darkness but only transparent because of its complete clarity. The chunky tan head manages a full finger and settles there, and patching sticks to the glass as it follows the fluid down.
This is an aromatic red, and it makes one wonder why it has to be such a middle-of-the-road style. This beer has far more character than its many pedestrian counterparts; not only is it hoppier, it also has a stronger malts presence and just a big bouquet overall. Pine gives way to orange peel and lots of it, bitter and zesty. Heady and resinous, it achieves balance in a big caramel sweetness, lots of toast and bread crust that follow alongside it almost from the beginning.
The taste continues exactly the same pattern but switching the order, malts hitting the tongue first and hops coming alongside. It's just as big but balanced, so much flavor in this beer. Pine, orange zest, some grapefruit, and a bit more from leaf and lemon notes hit the tongue. The same balance is kept as lots of caramel and toffee add sweetness, toasted breads and crust adding depth. Every single sip gives a big dose of both hops and malt.
Big crispness hits the medium-full body up front and continues through as it goes creamy smooth on the tongue.
