Poured 8oz of a pint bottle into tulip glass after sitting out of fridge x10mins.
App: Moderate hazy (not appropriate for style) amber with bright orange highlights. Large beige pillowy head with good retention. Thick lacing around entire glass noted as it fades.
Sm: Sweet, rich caramel and toffee with a whiff of alcohol but no fruity esters or diacetyl.The malt is sweet, without roasted aromatics. No hop spice or floral notes detected.
Flavor: Typical caramel up front with a moderate amount of alcohol mid-way through. This is prominent but isn't necessarily harsh and fades into a smooth, dry, bready finish. No fruity esters. Appropriately dominated by malt with no detectable hop characteristics and mild bitterness.
Mouth: Medium body with moderate carbonation. Warm, oily texture during mid-drink associated with alcohol flavor.
Overall: After the very nice, sweet aroma, I was expecting more of those sweet caramel and toffee notes in the mouth, but this was fairly mild and quickly gave way to alcohol. There were no solvent flavors that made it unpleasant, but this held me back from a higher rating. The lack of clarity is also inappropriate (if BJCP grading) but didn't take away from the enjoyment.

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.
