look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a dark copper color with a thin tan head, fades fast, no cap or any lacing on the glass but the color is pretty darned lovely especially when held up to the light where some reddish tones shine through.

Smell has a huge roasted malt aroma coupled with dark fruit, like figs, strong caramel presence.

Taste starts out with the caramel roasted malt front, a nice sweetness of dark fruit, very sticky with a slightly syrup like texture, somehow it avoids being overly sweet or cloying, soft yet ample amount of carbonation, strength is very well hidden.
