4.2/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A - Pours a pretty dark brown with copper and ruby highlights. Minimal 1/4 inch head quickly fades to a light ring around the glass with one or two little puddles floating around. Looks thick.
S - Sweet caramel and toffee malts, some fruits like plums and figs. Spicy hops are here as well. Oak notes are nice. Faint vanilla and alcohol notes.
T - Caramel and sweet malts. Oak. Warming alcohol. Brown sugar throughout. A faint bitterness at the end from the hops.
M - Medium body. Low carbonation. Smooth, rich.
D - With the high ABV and oakiness of this, I would find it hard to drink more than two or three. Very tasty brew overall! Let this one warm up for a while after taking it out of the fridge - maybe 20 or 25 minutes.
