3.94/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: pours a thick viscous dark ruby/chestnut with small beige head; dissipates quickly, but a thin layer of foam remains for a couple of minutes; no real lacing

Smell: very sweet malt with faint hops; something familiar, maybe a combination of candy, toffee and bourbon with dried fruit (bread pudding, maybe); slight smoke as it warms

Taste: very sweet with a big dose of warming alcohol; pretty decent hop bite that doesn't compete with the sweetness, but does give a dry hoppy aftertaste that lingers a while to balance it out a bit

Mouthfeel: very thick and creamy

Remarks: Enjoyed it overall, but the hop profile seems to be off for the style

Serving type: bottle

3.9/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

served from a 12 oz bottle in a pint glass

A: very dark golden brown when held to the light, Head two finger width but fades quickly.

S: licorice and caramel, strong alcohol smell typical of the style

T: sweet licorice and alcohol in a good way. A nice spicy hop but not bitter at all. Hint of clove.

M: Thick and heavy, coats the mouth in a sweet warming spice.

O: Very good variation of the style strong but doesn't turn the stomach. Great beer for the price. 6 pack instead of a 4 which is typical for this style.
