22oz Bomber, Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA.
This is a big beer all around. Very dark red pour with nice ruby highlights. Very bold upfront in all aspects – aroma, bitterness, malts, alcohol and general character. Great head and persistent nice lacing.
This skates at the very edge for me. Reminiscent of a cross between a Stone Double Bastard and Terrapin BHM. Lots of hyped-up amber/red character (quite dry), but it also hits hard in the American Strong Ale tradition.
A sweet and sour experience with all kinds of things going on. Rather complex, but the complexity is a little overshadowed by the alcohol and the hop bitterness. This beer is right at the edge of being huge and hugely delicious, and being a bit of a mess. I found that each mouthful seemed to give me bits of both!
