look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into an Ommegang flute on 7/3/11

Shared by Spider889

Bottled May 5th (or was it 3rd?), 2011

Scorched crimson brown color; fairly dark. Two fingers of poofy, tan foam. The head does recede but retention is solid and there is a good bit of lace.

The aroma seems close to balanced; perhaps tilted in favor of the malts. Floral hops, caramel, sugars and notions of candy. Smells really sweet. Booze is well-hidden. Tastes similar - focus on caramel and sweet bread. Smattering of burnt sugars on the back end. Hops are rather tame and bitterness restrained. maybe a hint of brown sugar. Sweet, yet palatable regardless. Sits in the full-bodied range. Resinous and slightly gritty. Carbonation is moderate and seems appropriate. Warming finish.

Not bad, considering. Good malt base, but I'd prefer more vibrant hops.
