look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Deep dark brown. Almost black. Touches of dark red when held to light. Head is the color of coffee with too much cream. Nice and thick. Creamy. Minimal lacing. Looks decadent.

Smell: Plums, cherries, figs, and booze. Big malty presence. Caramel, toffee, and a tiny hint of citrus. Tons of stuff going on here. As it warms, the booze comes out, but never becomes too aggressive. Almost treads on a barleywine, but holds off on the hops. Nicely balanced with a great depth of aroma.

Taste: Malty, chewy, and boozy. Caramel and toffee round out the middle of the taste. Super hot, even with a year+ on it. Biscuity malts. Sweet in good measure. Tobacco and a good amount of it. Malts struggle to keep the malts in check, but it seems to work. Warming melds the flavors, but also gives the tobacco a big kick up.

Mouthfeel: Full, creamy and smooth. Drinks like a champ. Carbonation is higher than I expected, but it's a nice compliment to the maltiness. Very nicely done.

Overall:
