16 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of herbal hops, caramel malt and red fruit. Body is medium and crisp. Herbal hops, caramel malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and bitter. Overall it is nice brew.

From the 650 ml. bottle with no date that I can find. Sampled on July 20, 2016.

It is nice to look at with its medium to dark brown tone and long lasting, lacing clinging tan head.

Unfortunately mine is an undated bottle as noted above and they announce "screaming with hops." Well I get mostly burnt and maybe a stale herbal quality on the nose. Maybe some musty cellar notes. Smells like a malt bomb coming.

The body is medium to heavy. Good texture.

The taste was semi-sweet and malt forward. The slightest of booze burns but maybe those are the spicy hops playing up. Mild to medium finish. I think maybe I did have a malt bomb...sadly. I bet I would like a fresher one.
