12oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada IPA glass.

Overall a great beer. Will add a detailed breakdown at a later point. Deep orange, slightly cloudy. About a 1" thick, dense head that took a good while to dissipate.The malts definitely take the lead here, caramel and toffee flavors shine through, mouthfeel is thick, almost syrupy.

Dark amber color with a solid head that retains. Great smell. Piney aroma with something else I can't really put my finger on. DEEP taste. Very heavy on the tongue. This is not your average beer. It packs a huge kick. Definitely a sipping beer. Good with dinner or on a cool day.
