4.7/5  rDev +12.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured into a hefe-weizen glass. Served at room temperature.

Appearance: Pours a lovely shade of deep red. On the initial pour, it is quite difficult to keep the head from overpowering the liquid part of the brew. After some time, the head settled a little, leaving lacing all over the edges of the glass. There is some light carbonation visible in the beer. Quite beautiful to look at.

Smell: This smells really good. It has a sweet aroma to it that is not at all overpowering. There is also the smell of malts in there. Very enticing smell, it really makes you want to drink deep. Probably one of the best smelling beers I've encountered.

Taste: Creamy, smooth, and full. This beer has a sweetness to it, but it is not wimpy. The flavor is quite rich, and is absolutely delightful. It masks the high ABV perfectly. It finishes with a bit of hoppy bitterness, which is a nice way to round out the beverage as a whole.

Mouthfeel: Heavy, and has a good sense of body to it. It is silky in its texture, and it slides over the tongue quite nicely. Quite a delight to swish around in the mouth.

Drinkability: Probably one of the best beers I've ever had. It is a true joy to drink this, and although it is sweet, I could drink these endlessly. You need to watch out though, as the bottle is 22oz and that ABV of 7.2% will creep up on you.

Highly recommended and worth the high price.
