look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

2 oz pour roughly and generously shared at a small bottle share at TG on MD tapping day
Thanks to the fellow BA's for cracking this and several others

Reviewing from notes made in my head!

A - Pours clear dark brown color with minimal head and laving

S - Dark fruits is definitely something that came from the smell with some carmel notes

T - Taste is much the same on front end with dark fruits and a finish of carmel and tobacco
Figs and dates

M - Medium to full bodied and feels much like a stout

O - Overall I was very excited to try this and it is definitely the best HotD offering that I have had

Thanks again to the generous BA
