Had on tap at Fireworks Pizza

A-Brown appearance with a small tan head and light lacing.

S-Aroma of caramel, molasses, dark malts, chocolate, earthy hops, oak, dark fruit, toffee and licorice.

T-Similar flavor, rich and malty with medium sweetness and minimal to light bitterness.

M-Full body, slick and smooth with soft carbonation.

O-Pretty surprised, very enjoyable, great sipper.

Still a 4, based on my previous rating... but with some notes. Poured a deep, transluscent amber, virtually no head, noticeable carbonation. Molasses, raisins, some wood, and a bit of booze on the nose. Really came together in the taste department. Dark fruit, oak, super clean and smooth, not overly sweet/molasses, etc., overall a really nice balance. The bitterness cuts in nicely without being overpowering. Medium body, covered the palate nicely, and had a really smooth finish. Just a strong example of a sipper that will put you in a luxurious state of mind. Get some.
