A-Poured into a mug producing a 5mm head that quickly dissipated to a 2mm ring with lacing over the top of te beer. Good amount of carbonation with slightly dark amber cloudiness.
S-Great with Caramel/Toffee hinted with Vanilla up front and background notes of Dark Cherry/Plum and only hints of medium hops. No alcohol smell whatsoever.
T-Great with it supporting nose. Caramel and Toffee followed by OK Vanilla. Finishes with the dark fruits and the medium hop. Once again for being 9.75%, alcohol nicely hidden.
M-Wee Heavy/Scotch Ale and Barley-Wine makers take note, this is perfection. It nails the right amount of Creamy-Chewiness for the style.
O-Flavor notes not robust enough and I am seeking the Barrel Version of this brew as it could make it perfect. As with my other 2011 brews, will cellar and check back at 5 and 10 years.
