This beer poured with a thick, tan colored head that took a long time to dissipate. Beer color is a dark, cloudy orange-ish amber; almost a brown. The aroma is heavy on hops; citrus, sweet fruit. Not really getting the high alcohol in the aroma. But the alcohol comes through in the taste. There is citrus, pine. A definite bitterness sticks around throughout the taste. Creamy mouth feel. Heavy, sweet. A lot going on here, but the hops and bitterness are the strong notes. The aftertaste leaves you with some bitterness on the back of your tongue. A very serious beer. Would probably age well.
