Pours an effervescent orange/ chestnut with a pinky of tan head. Stays effervescent, great lacing & above average head retention

S: Brandy, leafy hops, dark fruit

T: Plummy, figgy, dry & a touch boozey up front, some leafy hops. Slight sourmash notes combine, raisins & figs as this warms. Finishes dry with woody & herbal hops, with figgyness & just a whisper of apple crumble

MF: Medium bodied, light carbonation, skews fruity, thins out a touch as this warms

Booze & ABV are well hidden, a nice offering, not mind blowing

4.39/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours cola brown with a thin head that drizzles strands and leaves a Rohrschach pattern of lace about an inch above the liquid line

Smell: Caramel, fig, raisins and hazelnuts; Bourbon, oak and vanilla, also

Taste: Caramel, vanilla and Bourbon tones, up front, with the fig, raisin and hazelnut flavors developing mid-palate; somewhat surprising bitterness in the finish, though the oak and sweeter tones linger

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: But for the mouthfeel, this Strong Ale verges on Barleywine territory; an excellent beer from a brewery that deserves to be better known on a national scale

Thanks, sunkistxsudafed, for the opportunity
