look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Pours a cloudy orange-brown with a huge white head. Head has some serious staying power before settling to a thin sheet and leaving behind some lace.

Deep and rich dark fruit aroma. Fig, plum, and raisin combine with molasses and brown sugar. Big blast of spicy phenol alcohol finishes the nose - this could spell trouble.

This beer has some fantastic layers of malty goodness. Caramel, brown sugar, and molasses mingle with figs, data, and raisins. Very malty with plenty of fruit but has a restrained sweetness and wonderful balance. Yeast adds in plenty of spice and character, adding to the balance and complexity. Also has a nice underlying roastiness to it. And the alcohol that is so prominent in the nose does not show in the flavor.

Full-bodied, smooth and chewy. Too much carbonation upfront, so let it sit in the glass for a few before drinking. Deadly drinkability - reminds me of Nor'Easter with how easy it is to drink but hits like a hammer before you know it.

Very nice - highly recommended.

Bottle obtained from the brewery about a year and a half ago.

Dark brown pour, with a large off-white head that retained nicely and coated the glass with lace. Mild aroma of bready yeast and caramel malts. Taste was very bland up front, cardboardy malts, yeast, light herbal hop notes, no real sweetness or estery qualities that I like in the style; it was really just pretty lacking in taste, though benign and mostly non-offensive. Could've just been that the bottle was past its prime, but I don't see why a beer like this couldn't hold up a year or two in the cellar. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Pretty average overall, not very tasty, but not undrinkable.
