4.25/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A 12oz bottle poured into a snifter in celebration of signing a lease on an apartment my friends (one of them's a BA) are living in next year.

A-Deep dark black has about a one and a half finger dark brown foam head that lingers and leaves behind a decent lacing.

S-Coffee, roasted malts, chocolate. A sweet smelling brew.

T-Smells sweet, tastes sweet. Exact same flavors come through. Well balanced and mouth watering.

M-Medium bodied, creamy.

D-Alcohol is masked well, makes for easy drinking.

4.25/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours dark, deep brown, almost black with a thin sandlewood colored head. Has a very deep, sweet smell of burnt malted grains and molasses with a hint of grapes and spices. The mouth feel is quite sticky from the sugars and very warm. The taste follows the smell and very pleasant with sweet, sugary, burnt grains and caramel and surprising peppery, spicey aftertaste. This is a fantastic beer, but probably a little too heavy for an everyday beer.
