22 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Deep brown in color with a thick khaki head that slowly settles to a finger thick crown on the surface. Lacing is sticky and coats the glass.

S: Caramel and toast, along with piney, grassy hop zest.

T: Hops are more dominant up front. Grapefruit and pine, with some grassy, floral character. Dark fruit, brown sugar, and caramel flavors make up the malt bill. Finish is quite dry and clean, with little alcohol presence shown.

Notes: WTF is a complex brew, with impeccable flavor and medium body. Alcohol is hard to detect, even though it's there. Amazingly drinkable, and for that it could be dangerous. I love this beer, as it is great by itself, and would pair with just about any hearty meal. Venison roast, anyone?

Poured from their bomber...

Appearance - Pours 2 fingers of khaki head, color is a translucent dark copper amber, leaves some very nice lacing.

Smell - Dark fruits, dark toffee, faint chocolate, roasted malts, spicy hops, citrus peels. Really smells nice.

Taste - Roasted malts, hints of citrus peel, big grassy & spicy hops, ginger, white pepper, touch of dark fruits. All of these flavors are balanced perfectly, with a burnt toffee backbone. Spicy and grassy hop bitterness lingers between sips.

Mouthfeel - Medium mouthfeel, an almost crealy silkiness, medium but smooth carb combines nicely with the grassy hops and spice to provide some nice edges during the sip.

Overall - What an interesting mix of flavors! The balance and complexity here are really nice. Has flavors from multiple styles here, and it works so well. Unique, and very tasty. Go out of your way to give this one a try. It says 59 IBU's, but it truly tastes like more.

This beer was a dark brown color with a rather small tan head.

The aroma was sweet caramel and dark fruit.

It had a caramel and brown sugar taste. Also some raisin and a sweeter fruit.

This was a medium-bodied, malt-forward beer.

Good beer, would buy this again.
