Look - great Amber color with a great white head and good lacing.
Smell - piney malty sweet brown sugar smell and you can smell the booze
Taste - so similar to the smell but not as much of the booze taste.
Feel - full body with a creamy feel.
Overal this is a fantastic strong ale and so different with that brown sugar.

Transparent red color. Sweet malty smell with some hops. Sweet, booze, hops on the taste. Good medium body. Yummy.

Strong piney finish. I am not convinced that the "shugga" and the hops balance one another.

Middle of winter, not my choice. But makes a damn refreshing choice on any hot summer day. Gave this a poor rating before when I tried it in mid January, but had to raise that when I tried it in May.
