look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours with a dark red/garnet color with a tan bubbly head. The head has good staying power and laces well. I love the color of this beer...

Smell: Lots of malt, lots of hops, and a faint tropical fruit aroma. I'm surprised to find no peat-smoked aroma here...

Taste: There's a lot of hops in this brew, so they didn't exactly conform to style guidelines. The hop flavor is aggressive. This is rough, but in a great way. Lots of flavor and complexity in this brew. Tropical fruits...burnt fruit...sugar sweetness...tons of malt...tons of hops... Ends with a huge wave of alcohol that overwhelms the other flavors fighting for attention.

Mouthfeel: Fairly thick You can really taste and feel the alcohol towards the end. Very nice...

Drinkability: Good for an 8.3%abv brew. Very warming and relaxing.
