As your run-of-the-mill 12% ABV "brown ales" go, this one was the first letdown I've had from Sam & the Dogfish Head elite. Psychotically syrup-ey, very little head buildup. Aroma & flavor reeks of a hefty alcohol, bit of wood & what I could only classify as fermented apricot & burnt hazelnut characters. Completely unexpected (kudos for that), but definitely on my do-not-buy again list. Way too hefty, thick & medicinal for my taste.
Yes I know this isn't BA...
Bottled/Fridge: Sierra Nevada Celebration
Bombers/Growlers/Aging: The Abyss, Firestone 19th Anniversary Ale
Coming Up: something spiffy, most likely
