Ruby colored with a light tan head. Smells of raisins, molasses and burnt bread crust. A bit of that continues in the taste, but the addition of caramel is what stands out, as well as some stale hop bitterness that I found a little off-putting. Surprisingly light bodied compared to the strong aroma. It's good, but I would have liked a bit more in the body to match the amazing aroma.

A: Clear, dark crimson with a touch of brown. Thick,rocky off-white head.

A: Rich Caramel and coffee, sweet alchohol. Dried fruit leather. Nutty. Low hop aroma.

T: Earthy Hops, Caramel and Molasses, coffee. Stone Fruit esters. A noticable bitterness and alcohol in the end.

M: Silky smooth, Medium body, Low carbonation. Medium finish.

Overall: Perfect fall beer. Picked up 3 bottles to compare to a clone I tried to make. Definetely picking out the chocolate malt in the flavor and black malt in aroma, and perhaps the sugar additions gives it that molasses flavor. A little surpised at the light booziness. Pretty sure it's there but perhaps just my palate tonight.
