12 oz pour into a mug at 55F. Chilled to 45F for ideal tasting.
A - The first toast is to not choosing/having a glass mug. Appearance (after a transfer to a glass) is orange-red with direct light and red-brown with indirect light. Head sits tight at 4mm with mild lacing. Head stays constant through drink. Low carbonation.
S - Malty smell. Smells like a dark cherry coffee table that has been sitting in a cellar for a winter. Label says 'dark fruits'; i can't smell them. Nose is still getting over the flu.
T - Malts come out strong with a dry finish. There something there I can't put my finger of. Worthy though of a 3.75.
M - Mild action in mouth and finishes with subtle 'zah' on the back of the tongue. For the beer and, presumably, the style, a good fit. Bitterness lingers but does not register if you're not looking for it.
O - Overall a good beer. Bold and heavy enough to where you only need one, two at most, for a filling experience.
