650ml bomber poured into tulip 27/11/11

A hazy amber with just a few bubbles but a nice two finger cream colored head that hangs for a few minuets leaving a ring of lace

S quite sweet with some caramel and honey, a little citric hops but mostly sweet malts and a little rum

T pretty close to the nose with a little bread and dry cereal, slightly fruity but plenty of toffee

M heavy for the color with more bubbles then one could see in the glass, leaves toffee flavors for a little while

O a little sweet but well within my enjoyment level, pretty good stuff at the end of the day no major flaws and solid in all areas

I'm a little surprised I've never reviewed this one before, I remember having a growler of this stuff last year but I guess never bothered entering it in here. I could drink this again for sure I just wish Rogue didn't cost 8$+ a bomber around here

just a solid good offering
of honey malt and floral hops
a little sweet
a little bitter
with a slight head on top

color is color and this pours
orange and tan

smells like it tastes
not too rich
not too bland

some other slight nuances
a little citrus and nut

mouthfeel is balanced
sips or gulps easy enough
