look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from the 12oz bottle into a snifter.
Pours a deep dark amber, with half a finger of head.
Smells toasty, toffee and roasty malts.
Tastes very much in line with aromas. Good flavor and decent hop bitterness on finish.
Mouthfeel was solid and very drinkable.
Overall, it's a good representation of the style.
