12 ounce can poured into a pint glass. Canned on 10/26/11. Medium-dark copper body with a solid two fingers of frothy/bubbly light brown head. Moderate retention and mid-sized splotches of lacing throughout.
Aroma is very hop-forward and full of citrus. The dates that the can boasts about are also very prevalent. Woody, caramel, spice, and a mild hint of alcohol aromas are also noticeable.
Flavor has a touch of brown sugar, and is very fruity. Both dark fruit (dates, figs) and citrus (grapefruit, tangerines) are huge. There's a little bit of a spiciness that I'm unable to put my hands on, and rich maltiness. Slight hints of alcohol, but with everything else that's going on in this beer, it's not in your face.
Medium/heavy bodied with a good level of carbonation. Just a bit sticky.
To be honest, I've never been that enthusiastic about 21st Amendment, but I was very impressed with this. It's definitely a bigger beer, but balanced extremely well between the hops, spice, and malts. Cool can/pack design as well, for those who care about things like that.

A: Pours a deep ruby red with a light mocha head.
S: Dark fruits and light, but not citric fruits in the nose.
T: Lemon, some resiny pine, dark fruits to start followed by bready malt in the finish. Interesting. Definitely different from English or American barleywines.
M: Full bodied and smooth.
O: Worth a try. It's a good beer, and if nothing else, it's interesting. I've tasted few beers that taste quite like this.

A perfectly suitable ESB, if on the hoppier side and perhaps just a tad thin in the mouth. You do get the classic biscuity notes, and maybe not so much of the copper tinge you'll often find in the English ones. A bit sharper in the hops department, but not overly so. The only real problem here is the strength- it doesn't really add anything to the experience here but some alcohol- both in flavor and in strength. Really, why bother?
