look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep reddish brown. Big cream head. Settles to pretty patterns of wisps and a chunky collar. Nice lacing.

Smell - Fruity. Figgy and sweet smelling. Brown sugar. Booze.

Taste - Sweet and sugary. More dark fruits. Earthy and bitter. Lots of caramel. Lingering sugars.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Medium carbonation. Very sweet.

Overall - This is excessively sweet. Not even a caramelly sweetness or brown sugar. Just lots of unexciting sugar.
