I wanted to like this beer. I really did. For a variety of reasons.
The pour is almost more of a deep deep brown with a little bit of lazy carbonation remaining over the top.
Nose is sweet. Almost like a grappa sweet. Big alcohol presence, along with a dark fruit sweetness to it.
This does not taste like beer, as most people would expect it, but almost like a decent port. That would actually be the how I would describe this beer overall. A beer for port lovers. I think it's the cranberries and jasmine that really give it this deep syrupy sweetness, and it's got a high ABV.
This more I think about this, the more that is how I approach it. Don't drink this beer thinking you're drinking beer. Think of it as a malted port. With that change in thinking I like it that much more

A- Dark Chocolate pour with a tan head that disappears leaving faint lacing.
S- I have a small head cold so bear with me through this. I can smell some subtle sweetness from the cranberries, and there is definitely some oak essence as well. The smell is rich, and I can smell the 18.20% abv.
T- I was surprised how smooth this drank after smelling so much alcohol through this stuffy nose. The malt and cranberries give initial sweetness, and the oak gives a spectacular smooth finish. As I drink more, I become more puzzled by the lack of warmth from the alcohol content. It is reallly smooth.
M- This is rather heavy, almost syrupy. That being said, very drinkable.
O- This is a great beer though I found it to be very over priced. I encourge all serious stout fans to go try this exceptional brew. I enjoyed it, and I will have it again.
