Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip. Batch 91.

A: Pours a dark brown with gigantic 3-4 finger off white head that lasts several minutes and leaving lots of sticky lacing.

S: Raisin, plum, and sweet malts. A bit of tobacco and leather and oak wood.

T: Sweet malts and subtle dark fruits. Raisins and an earthy touch that reminds me a bit of tobacco and smoked meats.

M: Full bodied and lots of carbonation. Finish is drier than I was expecting.

O: This is a unique strong ale, and very enjoyable. I look forward to my next HOTD brew!
