3.9/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

A: Head magically conjured out of nowhere. At the beginning of the pour it didn't look like this beer had carbonation. A small remnant of a dark hay colored head remains. Unfiltered body, rootbeer mixed with pomegranite juice tone.

S: Multidimensional nose of roasted malts, raisin, alcohol and a bit of peet.

T: Oh very nice...very nice indeed. Lets begin from the top. Flavors of bittersweet chocolate, roasted grains dominate the forefront. Strawberry sweetness flows downstream to a solid friendly bitterness. Finishes to a very ash like taste but in a good way. And as it warm, the alcohol esters increase.

M: Body is a bit thin for the style, I could use it to be a bit chewier.

D: Not bad, I would have actually liked it to have been smokier. But I really enjoyed to strawberry alcohol esters it created.
