4.3/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

This brew poured with a half a finger of thick, tan head. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left a hint of a crown on top of the body, yet no lacing. The body was a dark mahogany color with moderate carbonation visible and a huge amount of "floaties." The nose presented with smoke, roasted nuts, rich caramel and even a hint of dark fruit. A very robust nose to say the least. The taste had a lot going on. I got nuttiness, caramel malt, brown sugar and then smoke. There was also a bit of fruit in the background as well. The booze made a quick appearance at the end of the sip. The body was bigger than I'm used to seeing for the style with lower than expected carbonation. The finish was long with nuttiness and smoke. This could be one of the best beers of this style that I've had. All of the flavors worked with each other and it was a great sipping beer. I would definitely have this beer again. This is the beer I'm using as a benchmark for the style.
