look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: [4.5] Poured into a standard pint. Formed a nice creamy 1 1/2 finger tan head. Looks black in the glass but there are ruby hues when held up to the light. Looks quite nice in the glass. When drinking it leaves lots of nice lacing on the glass. The bottle clearly lists a best by date 11/19/14. The ABV is listed clearly at 9.2%. These guys know how to label a beer that is a big plus.

S: [3.75] Caramel. Dark Fruits. Piney hops.

T: [4.00] Much more chocolate than I expected. Really nice on the front with chocolate. There is a spicy quality to the hops (not bitter - spicy). There is a slight nip of bitter on the finish but not jarring. I am also getting some earthy tones in the midpalate. The earthy tones are more pronounced as it warms up. This beer is more complex than others I've had recently.

M: [3.75] Smooth and full bodied. There is a slight dry feeling due to the bitter - but nothing to unsettling.

O: [4.00] I really like this beer. The appearance, smell and tastes are all hitting. There is a slight sense of alcohol - but not bad for a 9.2% ABV. I don't think this is a beer that I would drink more than 1-2 of in a sitting. Also I liked the flavors a bit more when it was colder. The warmth brought out a bit more of the earthy and bitter tones (and subdued the chocolate).
