Old Slugger

12 oz single, thanks go out to Rob for the chance to try this.
This is a beer with some presence. I like it a lot.
The pour looks substantial with a heavy, copper colored body and some really nice, thick white head.
Nose and tastes deliver some substantial, malts that are nicely complimented with a decent splash of bitterness. The hop profile is noticeable and definitely brings a presence that is unusual for the style, AND gives more punch than a beer with this kind of ABV would be expected to deliver.
The bitterness lingers longer than i would think it would as well, and with it comes a satisfying feeling of alertness. This beer is one to be reckoned with on a number of levels and I like it very much. A little soap in there too.
Good punch, a beer than delivers nicely. Ballsy for the ABV.
