This pours a dark translucent colour with about a finger width of tannish head that stuck around. The nose came forward with some dark fruit and sweet molasses and maybe a bit of maple around the edges. I was really looking forward to diving into this. Unfortunately was a bit underwhelmed with the flavour. Some of the same notes came forward on the tongue, but there was a grassiness that overpowered those notes. I thought maybe I had the beer a bit too cold and let it warm up before taking some further sips. This did bring forward some of those flavours but only slightly. It was still a good beer but was expecting a little bit more of a flavour profile based on the nose.

Poured a dark and murky brown; sticky, creamy, tan 2 inch head; cream lace on glass; good retention; tight bubbly surface remained on the beer throughout consumption. Smelled like prunes, candied prunes, brown yeasty bread, burnt sugar malt. Tasted like burnt sugar, burnt molasses, spiced burnt malt, yeast, brown sugar, pretzel bread, and brown spice bread; the aftertaste was sweet with an ever slight hop taste, but almost not noticeable. Just noticeable when the beer warmed a bit. The higher alcohol was well-hidden, but it came through just a little. The mouthfeel was full bodied but light a sense; carbonation was on the medium side. It wasn't dry, in fact it was wet; quaffable, definitely! This was a very delicious brew!
