Treated as an American Strong Ale, this was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a semi-dark red color with a thin white head that dissipated at a nice pace. Messy lacing ran around the glass nicely. The smell started off with some big smooth toffee to caramel sweet malts. Ruddy leafy tobacco flavors come in and dry out the aroma. The flavor copies the smell nicely. Definitely, dry tobacco, toffee and caramel over top of some citrus and piney hops. Dried tobacco/citra aftertaste and smooth dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice smooth sipping quality about it. Overall, this was a good American Strong ale that I think I could come back to.

Thanks to Lis and Beav for this one. Nice brew, but not particularly notable.

Very malt-forward and a pronounced nuttiness that was not expected. A pretty good beer overall, but I've had others I've enjoyed more.
