A: Killer penguin pours hazy copper with no head, but sticky booze clings to the goblet. 2

S: The nose is a blast of spicy and sweet dark fruits: plum, raisin, cherry, backed with sticky resinous pine hops. Some sweet toffee malt hides behind the spices. 4

T: Hot all the way down, but the 4 years of aging seems to have mellowed and subdued some of the elments. A tinge of metallic flavor follows a sweet malty body. Maybe less aging would have been better here. 3.5

M: Thin, watery, hot on the tongue.

O: Meh. Wish I'd shared this camping this weekend instead of drinking it alone. Mostly hot and sweet and boozey.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a very dark amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of dark fruits, malts. Taste is alcohol, grapes, malts, dark fruits, a bit more alcohol. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer, but one of these per session is plenty.
