4.13/5 rDev -3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from 22oz bomber into a tulip.
Appearance: rich tawny brown with a nice cloudiness, one finger of light tan foam atop. It looks pleasing.
Smell: rich, sweet malt aroma with hints of plums. Hops are big, peppery, spicy and a little floral. Quite nice.
Taste: whoa. Malt is very big with a flavor of plum-tobacco hard candy. This beer is quite sweet. Hops are as in the aroma, although they seem a little more floral than peppery here. It's hard to compete with this malt. Alcohol is quite present. Overall, very good, but very ... big.
Mouthfeel: thick, heavy, syrupy with very little carbonation. A nice mouth-coating leaves plenty of opportunity to revel in the flavor. Very little carbonation on this bad boy.
Drinkability: I must not be worthy. It is delicious but HUGE in flavor and alcohol. Screw brandy, Saint Bernards should carry casks of this stuff to stranded Alpine skiers.
Serving type: bottle
