nice, heavy mouthfeel with undertones of both molasses and toffee. Love the beer, reminiscent of sweet potato soufflet on a cold winter night.

A- Clear brown with a large bubble head that dissipates quick leaving behind no lacing.

S- Very sweet with vanilla, oak, whiskey, and caramel notes.

T- Sweet, spicy, vanilla, caramel, and whiskey burn.

M- Medium bodied with low carbonation.

O- A very tastey beer with a unique character.

My long review was lost after I added it. Shorter version: single finger head, excellent lacing, deep amber body. Aroma of molasses oak caramel, mint, earthy hops. Flavor is similar but less sweet more earthy also with caramel, oak, molasses. Medium body moderate carbonation. Complex and flavorful.

A: clear, dark ruby red liquid topped with a bumpy, messy, dense tuft of coffee-creme colored foam... the head falls down within a couple minutes, little lacing

S: initial unmistakable I&G profile... bold fresh oak grain, perfume of vanilla-creme coated malted chocolate, and potent undercurrent of dry cherry/currant liqueur... tiny hint of cigar in the far background

T: up front - husks of chocolate malt, vanilla-soaked coffee beans... delicate essence of coffee roast on top midway... understated rush of very dry dried cherry with a kiss of tobacco in the finish... hardly sweet and only mildly bitter (tannic)

M: light-medium-bodied... super soft with a warm, sanded-smooth tannic chaser... mellow, dry finish with a faint warmth

O: not too different from their other beers - flavorful, dry, easy drinking, maybe a bit drier - the roasted elements, though subtle, do make this stand out among the rest... of the 4 I've now had, they seem to shine most at the extremes of color - the lightest (original) and darkest (bourbon stout) have been the best and relatively most distinctive... let's see if that trend continues the more I try
