4.33/5 rDev +1.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured this beer into a nonic at 51 degrees.
Appearance: A light cream ring around the glass with some foam on the top. I think that the head is non existent because of the alcohol content. The color of the beer is dark brown oil color. The clarity is opaque. There is some effervescence on the sides of the glass.
Nose: A rich malty aroma, toffee, chocolate, dark cherries, molasses, a nuttiness, and solvents. There are notes of phenols, port, and a fruity ester.
Taste: A very rich thick and chewy malty beer. There are flavors of bittersweet chocolate, dark dried cherries, molasses, solvents, nuttiness, and toffee. There are notes of phenols, fruity esters, and wood.
The mouth feel is rich, chewy, and filling.
Overall: The body of the beer is thick and full. The finish is complete and full. This beer has a lot of complex flavors and layers. There is a nice flavor in the beer and is very easy to drink. I am very glad that I got to drink it.

3.9/5 rDev -8.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Poured into a teku, dark brown and murky, with no head. Smell up front is smoke, a dark fruits, raisins, figs a hint of cherry skin. Getting a lot of smoke in the taste. It's a subdued smoke, not like a rauch or anything, but it's definitely there. Was not expecting it and it overshadows some of the other flavors. No carb issue here. As it warms, some of the dark fruit, caramel, burnt sugar flavor is coming out. Super complex. This might have gone over my head. Worth a try for sure. I'll try some with some age on it, see how that compares.
