look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A: This is a fairly clear, medium amber beer with a long lasting tan head of less than a half finger cap on the beer.
S: This beer has a deep malty aroma with malt sweetness, some smokey and almost peaty aromas. There is a moderately-light caramel note in the background. There is the faint aroma of European hops aroma. There is some yeast derived dark fruit notes like plum with molasses and a light touch of alcohol flavor are in there as well.
T: A big malt flavor with a lot of malt sweetness followed by a dry roasted malt flavor. The hops flavor and bitterness are moderately low letting the malt and sweetness dominate the flavor. There is a very light pepper, some alcohol and some bitterness keeping the sweetness in check through the finish.
M: This is a thick, full bodied beer with moderate carbonation and a light alcohol warmth.
O: This malty, sweet and slightly smokey beer would make for a fine after dinner cordial. It's a fairly sweet beer but not cloyingly sweet with the alcohol and light bitterness keeping it in check.

Poured into my 16 oz wide Flying Dog tulip glass. Pours light brown, with a two inch white head that settles very quickly into a film of bubbles.
Smell is fig, brown sugar, vanilla, molasses, and rum soaked raisins.
Taste fallows the nose very well, fig stands out most to me, fairly sweet.
Body is less than medium, wish it had more life, a little dry, and goes down easy enough for its abv.
I was a little underwhelmed, especially with the rave reviews.
