Poured from a big 22 oz bomber. Was a hazy, opaque, burgundy brown/rasin like color. Medium amount of carbonation, light creamy head.
Had a slight barley-like aroma. Brown sugar, burnt caramel, toffee, raisins. Taste has a strong hop profile throughout the sip, toffee up front, medium malt backbone, and brown sugar. Finishes semi-dry, alcohol character finish that lingers for several minutes. Translates to strong hop flavoring, sweet, smooth, almost bourbon-like (in a very mild sense).
Has a medium body, quite smooth, and a mild boose warming effect. Drinkability is excellent. The way it's brewed hides the ABV (to some degree). Is very flavorful & strong. Potentially would get better with age?
