A: It poured cloudy light brown in color with lacey patterns of bubbles covering the surface. There are lots of yeast particles floating near the bottom of my snifter glass.
S: There is an aroma of caramel malts, toffee and alcohol in the nose, which intensifies as the beer warms up.
T: The initial taste is somewhat sweet and gradually transitions over some bitterness in the finish. Like the smell, there are flavors of caramel and toffee. The taste becomes more balanced between sweetness and bitterness as it warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate, smooth and very thick. There is definitely a warming sensation from the alcohol.
D: It isn't that difficult to drink this beer, but the overall flavor doesn't stand out as being very interesting.
