3.78/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Glass: Over sized wine glass.

Appearance: Dark black with red highlights, and a frothy mocha head that dissipated rather quickly.

Aroma: Fruity, strong sweet malt, and alcohol. Smells fantastic.

Taste: Sweet and smokey malts, with a strong alcohol finish.

Mouthfeel: Thin, soft carbonation with an alcohol warming finish.

The smell of was so outstanding I could inhale the aroma all day, however the amazing aroma gave me high expectations that the flavor simply did not deliver on. I was expecting a complex range of flavor while in my opinion this beer has a simplistic flavor.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a large snifter. Batch 85

A: Pours an almost muddy dark brown with a 1finger light mocha head. Decent amounts of lacing a retention.

S: Smells of leather, figs/dark fruits and a hint of chocolate.

T: Close to the nose, the leather isn't quite as intense. dark figs/fruit, malty sweetness and a hint of chocolate.

M: Medium to full body and moderate carbonation.

O: Overall, an excellent old ale. A bit heavy on the leather but if you can get by that, it makes for an excellent beer.

12 oz. bottle. Batch 86.

A: Very dark dark brown color. Some mocha colored head.

S: Boozy sweet figs, floral, dark fruits, leathery, sweet chocolate

T: So thick and creamy. Roasty chocolate notes that don't take over. Warming.

M: Thick and creamy.

O: I think this is my favorite beer on this planet. I just love this beer so freaking much. Incredible complex flavors and aromas. Drinks somewhere between a barleywine and an imperial stout. Love it!
