look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Very dark color with some reddish hues, body seems medium to bold, carbonation is also medium to rich and forms a big head on a very light brown, the layer on top is permanent and is formed of small compact bubbles with some large ones.

S: hops are main ingredient of the aroma, the you can sense malts and some fruits, unusually I got some guava inside that gives the fruity aroma.

T: Again hops are the base of the flavor, is hard to say the other ingredients, but may be some fruits and of course the malts.

M: As the American strong ales are, this one is very complicated, starts and ends bitter but not disgusting.
