look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A - Deep, dark ruby, nearly black. Nice solid light brown head the color of light brown sugar with a bit of rockiness. Lace clings all over the glass at first. As the head settles down to a thin layer, the laciness dissipates a bit too.
S - A very nice blended hop aroma with caramel malts.
T - Oh yeah. Really nice hop bit up front, but nice smooth body of roasted malts, and burnt caramel. Background notes of cherry, dried fruit, resin, molasses, and a light smokey quality. Alcohol makes its presence known.
M - Medium-full, round and smooth overall with sharp prickliness popping through. Perfect carbonation. Finish goes a touch dry... nice.
D - Very drinkable for such a big full flavored beer... but I'd better pass with the ABV or I might go for a third. A sipper.
Serving type: on-tap
