4/5 rDev -2.9%
12oz bottle around fridge temp pouredinto a snifter. 11.9% ABV
pours out a wonderful deep red color with one finger of light tan head. not the best retention, no real lace. absolutly love the color of this beer, exspecially when held to the light.
nice aromas of candied dark fruits, thick burnt caramel, some molasses. alcohol noticable, but by no means overpowering.
very nice taste, a little hot and spicy alcohol, but thats to be expected with such a big, young beer. lots of fruits, dark fruits, fruity esters, rum soaked cherries. a nice burnt caramel character, slight toffee, molasses, very nice. finishes with a hot alcohol warming effect.
big, full, dense body. carbonation just slightly too prickly.
pretty much the staple old ale, very nice malt character to this. a little hot right now, but age should do wonders to this. cant wait to try this in a few years.
