4.18/5 rDev +6.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: A beautiful amber/orange with reds and browns dancing about. A medium pour produces 1/2 inch of off white head that quickly dissipates into a thin sheet. Gorgeous beer. i just wish the head retention was a little better.
S: Wow. A very nice smell. Fruits hits you right off the bat. Pear dominates and almost comes off as citrusy. Also some fresh smelling toasted grains/wheat. Alcohol is there. Spice is mild enough to remain a mystery. Let us hope it comes out in the taste. A bready/bananaish yeast says hello.
T: Exciting. It is wonderfully balanced but on two levels. A first. The dominant is the bready/bananaish yeast with lots of pear. Both melded to perfection. Tier two is toasted grains and alcohol. That they made the alcohol take a back seat in this beer is impressive in and of itself. And the flavors don't all hit at once. It progresses.
M: Medium bodied mouthfeel. CO2 is a little high but spot on for the beer.
D: It is a crime to chug this. Take your time. Considering the alcohol content this beer is el drinkeebahl.
The balance isn't perfect, but the adventure makes up for it. An underrated beer by a long shot.

Appearance- Dark caramel with a slight red hue. Almost no head produced.
Aroma- Big whiff of sweet toasty malts.
Taste- Malt dominates this one with big caramel flavors and dark fruit like raisins and plum.
Feel- For such a malt bomb this is very clean and very drinkable.
Overall- Great beer and while heavy on the malt it works perfectly. Incredibly drinkable especially at 8%, which could make this a little dangerous. Definitely worth a try, and I know Ill be getting this again.
