Not something for everyday, but good for something different. Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Nice beige head and good lacing, rich copper color. Boozy smell and taste. Nuttiness and sweet caramel taste. Nice with cheese and crackers.

Pours a hazy copper color, with cream colored head that isn't big, but laces all day. Smells of flowers and citrus fruit with a pleasant burnt sugar background. One of the nicest smelling beers I've ever smelled. For a beer with such a bitter profile, the taste is wonderfully balanced. Each thick, creamy sip starts with a caramel sweetness at the top, which quickly sinks into bitter hops that leave you with a nice, hoppy aftertaste. For a 12% ABV brew, there's little hint of alcohol in the taste. A fairly complex and well-balanced beer, without any one aspect overpowering the others. Definitely premium and worth the price.
