Poured from the bottle into a clean pint glass.
This beer pours a beautiful dark cherry red with a khaki head that leaves pretty lacing down the side of the glass.
Smell - Let this one warm up slightly - The nose on this beer is wonderful, starting with some roasted, faint coffee, dark chocolate and fig like notes.
Taste - This beer does not let down - Starts off sweet, as it rolls over the palate, the hops make their presence known and combat the sweetness. This brings us to the finish, which then appears a bit of alcohol, probably because of the 8.1% abv, however it doesn't last long till a coffee like aftertaste is left on the palate.
Mouthfeel - Very good medium bodied. Not light yet not heavy.
Overall - I think this is a solid brew. Lots of flavors for the enjoyer to figure out and keep you wondering. Not boring by any means. Sweet, bitter, roasty with enough alcohol warmth. What a great brew this is!
