Tasty, full-flavored beer. Heavy, syrupy, high-gravity and smoky.

Served cool from bottle into tulip glass.

S) Rich Christmas cake.

A) Hazy red-brown with no head and thin film. A few small bubbles rising from the top.

M) Pleasant light carbonation. Not heavy for the ABV. Slight cloying bitterness at the back of the mouth.

T) Rich malt, slight bitterness seems to be imparted by alcohol rather than hops. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

O) Gives a pleasant alcohol warming as it goes down. Doesn't live up to the BA hype for me, but is certainly a pleasant beer to drink.
