look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams signature pint. Reviewed from notes from a New Years Day get together.
Appearance: Pours a mixed amber/brown color with a solid tan head that lasted a short while and left a decent lacing.
Smell: Lots of malts and lots of spices. Maybe some cherry. A lot stronger from the bottle than the glass though.
Taste: Much the same. Very strong malt flavor with spice and a strong sweetness that picks up like cherry and honey. Seemed comparable to some extent to cherry bourbon I've had in the past. Still maintains a little bit much booze, but it's not bad.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation and a slightly syrupy feel going down.
This is something I enjoyed, but I don't think I'd have a problem never having it again. There is a lot going on here, but not enough to cover up the strength of alcohol flavor here.
Serving type: bottle
