Appearance- Love it. Looks like a glass of auburn/brownish/reddish muddy water. Surprising head for such high abv that dissipates to froth. Excellent lacing. It almost looks like the foam at the top of a mug of cocoa.
Smell- Oaky booziness. Sort of sweet.
Taste- Delicious. VERY boozy. Some may not care for that but I personally love that. Tastes like its been aged in oak barrels, not sure if it actually has though. Excellent winter beer, has a little spice to it as well. Not a ton, not like a winter warmer or anything but its got some strong flavors. Maybe a dash of nutmeg or ginger.
Mouthfeel- Incredible. Very full and smooth. Good carbination but not at all "bubbly" somehow.
Overall- Would DEFINITELY buy this one again. Could be priced way way higher and still be worth it. I highly reccomend it if you like strong beers in general.
