Pours a reddish brown body with an extremely frumpy tan-colored head with excellent glass clinging and retention. Aromas are extremely hop-forward, with lots of candied orange peel and tropical fruit, with molasses and honey-like layers beneath the initial whiff. To me the flavors are somewhat reminiscent of barleywine, with a perfect balance between big chewy malts and powerful hops. The taste is a complex meshing of figs and other dark fruits, molasses, and grapefruit rinds. It's a very happening brew. Nothing subtle or coy about it. Every aroma and flavor note is as loud and proud as the can decor. Good stuff.

Canned in 2011.
Pours a slightly hazy medium brown with copper highlights and a large, frothy khaki head that slowly dissipates, leaving sticky lacing.
Aroma is laden with dates, figs, prunes, and toffee. Smells very rich.
Flavor reveals green apple, dates, and raisins underlying a lightly toasted, bready caramel malt backbone. Hints of sherry indicate that oxidation may have set in.
Body is a touch full, with fairly low carbonation and moderate alcohol warmth.
The malt backbone is a little lacking for the style, but ester notes are fairly complex. Probably won't age nicely much longer. Metallic notes surface as it warms.

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.
