Cannot remember where I picked this one up but it has been in the basement for a while so I figured I better give it a run. Outstanding looking beer, hazy brown with a fluffy head that stuck around grabbed the glass, stunning. Good aroma but not great. Flavor was great, tasty and smooth, did a good job of masking the alcohol which gives bonus points overall. The flavor improved as it warmed. It was a very good beer that I enjoyed very much and would purchase again depending upon the cost which I simply do not remember.

A: The beer is very hazy amber brown in color. It poured with a finger and a half high beige colored head that died down but has good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of candi sugar and caramel are present in the nose along with notes of yeast and hints of dark fruits.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that candi sugars aren't noticeable and there is instead malty sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Although it seems a bit malty for the style, this beer is rather easy to drink because it masks any traces of alcohol from the taste.

Fluffy four-finger head. Rocky settling. The lace becomes large spots. Brown color with a bit of a haze. Some light shines through.

Sweet and high in alcohol to the nose, like a barley wine. Some cherry and molasses notes.

The taste matches the smell--semisweet treacle and warming alcohol. There are elements of brandy with this beer. No noticeable hop. Thick, rich mouthfeel. The carbonation is light, enhancing this effect.

This may be the LOUDEST beer I've ever poured. It came out super-fizzy, but not like champagne. It had that clingy-bubbly behavior like when root beer gets poured over ice cream. It was crackling and popping in the glass for a while, but eventually settled down into that typical deep caramel I expected to see. Smell is by far the worst of my senses, but I could smell almost nothing at all off of this one. Really enjoyed the flavor, with just enough sweetness without an overbearing texture to go perfectly with our venison-and-onions dinner.
