22oz bomber served in a Duvel tulip glass. No date that I could find on the bottle.

Appearance: Mostly clear copper-amber color. Persistent thin off-white foam. Lots of strands and sheets of persistent lacing.

Smell: Grapefruit, pine, peach, mango, orange.

Taste: Grapefruit, peach, mango, orange rind, a solid caramel malt middle, and a bitter finish with more grapefruit and pine.

Mouthfeel: Nicely thick, good carbonation, a definite stickiness on the teeth due to all the hops.

Overall / Drinkability: Intense, but all the hops are nicely balanced by the right amount of malt sweetness. Dangerously drinkable with well-hidden alcohol. Went well with mac and cheese and I'll definitely have to pick this one up again to pair with some other meals.

I've been to the brewery and it's good there but I've also experienced barrel-aged at beer festivals -- and that is to die for. Stuff is so rich it leaves a slick on the glass. Amazing all-around
