Wow, this beer has a ruby reddish color in a glass. smell is of malts and smoke. Nice lacing on glass. Flavor is very up front of bitter malts but its worth its price tag. Alcohol is present in taste but not too bad. This beer will fill you up, thats a fact. I couldnt drink more than 2 a day.

12oz brown bottle purchased from Oak Barrel in Sydney.
Pleasantly deep brown hue, ruby red when held to the light, with a very fine and fairly persistent film of yellow-beige. Lacing forms in spots, and the body is very rich indeed, holding fine rivulets of carbonation as its tilted. Looks pretty heavy and good.
Nose is rich and malty, with plenty of roast notes and a medicinal overtone. Slight smoky aromas permeate a little as it warms, along with a mineral sharpness. Booze inveigles itself as well, giving a heady boost of intoxication to the mix. Nice stuff.
Taste is initially big and sweet, but strangely enough it gets sharper as it warms, substituting a fine mineral, slightly medicinal tone for the broad sweetness at the start. There's still a burnt toffee character persisting, and more suggestions of smoke and booze. Aftertaste is quite blunt: without much lingering sweetness it drops off rather suddenly.
Feel is good, smooth throughout, and allowing some permeation of the sweetness even when it's a little lacking on the back.
It's a big beer, missing a little complexity (or maybe suffering a little from transportation), but with plenty to offer nonetheless.

It took me a bit to warm up to this style. This is an update to my previous rating.
A: Dark caramel brown with a minimal head. What little lacing there is quickly dissipates.
S: Slight boozy scotch smell sets the table for what's to follow.
T: Very nice, slightly bitter, with whisky notes that linger on the tongue.
M: nicely carbonated, medium light mouth feel.
O: I had to come back to this beer to really appreciate craft that goes into the making of this beer. It's so widely available in Michigan, that I had a tendency to overlook it. I won't make that mistake again. Nice!
