4.5/5 rDev +17.2%
Appearance: Very dark red-brown. A small off-white head quickly fades to a small ring of lace.
Smell: Caramelized malt. Pretty faint.
Taste: Sweet up front with caramel and malt, followed by slight bitterness. After this some alcohol warmth appears along with a woody aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Strong carbonation hits the tongue up front, followed by a smooth, thick body.
Overall: Solid and hearty. If you like caramel, try it!

Pours a dark brown to black color with ruby highlights, and a two finger foamy head with good retention and lacing. The aroma has caramel malt, peat, roasted malt, and some dark fruit.
Has a sweet taste from the caramel malt, with some bitterness from the roasted malt for balance. There is also peat, a little dark fruit, some smoke, and toasted malt.
Medium bodied with modest carbonation. Has a caramel and peat aftertaste. Very nicely made, and well worth trying again.

The beer poured a dark brown with a tan head. The smell is mostly malt with maybe a little dark fruit. The taste is all malt in a wonderful way. Caramel and coffee are present, maybe some dried fruit. Prunes or raisins, perhaps. The mouthfeel is not as thick as you'd expect, with some nice warming from the alcohol. This is a great version of one of my favorite styles.
