Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Weyerbacher pint glass.
A: Dark brown, nearly opaque, with a thin light tan head and low visible carbonation.
S: Chocolatey, a bit boozy, nutty, dark fruit, a touch of coffee and roasted malts. Overall impression is pretty sweet without being cloying.
T: Chocolate, toffee, nutty, dark fruit (plums and raisins), vanilla, with sweetness and a bit of roasty bitterness in the end.
M: Medium to a bit lighter-than-expected body, but sticky mouthfeel. Alcohol noticeable but doesn't detract. Low carbonation sensation.
O: I thought this was pretty tasty, but not blowing me away. Glad to have tried it, but there are better examples of style out there.
