2.45/5 rDev -37%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5
A: a solid brown. initial pour includes a large creamy tan head that has reasonable retention and great lacing.
S: nose is pretty sweet/hot. deep rich sugary fruits. plums, raisins. molasses in there for sure. maybe even some chocolate. there is some resiny hop aroma in there as well. each time i go to the glass it seems to be picking a side.
T: the first sip starts very hot. correction, all the sips start very hot. i wish i could find a bottling date on this sucker, but it must have been recent. a bunch of sweetness in there comes out after the booze. tastes like caramelized sugar. figs. ant get any hop flavor is this malt/booze bomb.
M: pretty smooth as far as mouthfeel is concerned. huge body.
D: i really dont know what to think of this one besides that it needs more time. too much heat really detracts from some other good flavors. not sure if i got a bad bottle or what cause other reviews are much more favorable. however, gotta go with what's in my glass.
Serving type: bottle
