4.13/5  rDev +3%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy a coppery red amber with a one finger head, leaves a thin lacing, descent retention for a high gravity beer. Pours thick as molasses. Aromas are spicy, bready, yeasty, malty and boozy. Slight papery or woody like character to the malt. Many dried fruit flavors, raisin, fig, plum. Lots of bready, and woody malt and caramel flavors. Spicy, boozy, oakey, bits of whiskey linger in the finish. Good rich mouth feel, a bit wet, but malty enough to balance this to make an overall medium bodied beer. Definitely some heat going in and down the hatch. Excellent brew here.
