look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours thick and flat. Some thin lacing. Dark reddish copper in color.

S: Sweet maltly goodness. Hints of honey, toffee and vanilla. You know where this is going.

T: Malty flavor up front that melts into an amazing vanilla sweetness.

M: Thickish silky mouthfeel that evaporates into dryness on the back of the tongue.

D: A big malty sweet brew perfect for the winter as a late night drink. Warming, calming and relaxing.

Served: in an oversized wine glass.
