4.85/5  rDev +16.9%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - A big fat four finger head looks creamy and khaki with slight reddish cast. The head recedes a bit, but stays pretty thick, and leaves big solid sheets of creamy lace on the glass. The cloudy brew is russet brown with some purple in there too. The head stays at a fat finger for quite a while....nice retention!

S - I could smell this from the second I popped the top....it's quite pungent. I smell creamy sugary candy, Laffy-Taffy, chewy caramel filling-yankers, and Bit-O-Honey. Lots of fruit too: banana (banana Laffy-Taffy), dates, plums, prunes, and apricot baby food. Also vanilla and tawny port are very discernible. This is one complex MoFo!

T - Sweet caramel gooey candy is my first impression. Loads of dark fruit follow the candy sweetness, and eventually the sugars fade into a firm alcohol port flavor. I taste plums and dried apricots mainly, with big purple grapes and some very subdued hay-like hop flavors. This sweet fruity brew is best saved for desert.

M - Full bodied, sugar-coated, with a low level of carbonation and a balancing hop bitterness that helps to kill the sugar. Oily and rich. Very warming with a big boozy finish.

D - This brew screams quite evening by the fire with some chocolate. This is pretty damn complex and very comforting but definitely not a session beer. Enjoy this over the course of an hour after dinner in place of port or scotch. I'm really impressed with this one.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

330ml bottle. Tasting Chalice glass. Bright brownish amber color, deep amber tints to the light. Tan head is close & shows discrete retention, Intense caramel, alcohol, cane sugar, spiced, herbal & fenolic aromas. Kind sweet, slight toasted malty upfront. Toffee, biscuit flavors as well & involving heat. Medium to full body. Soft carbonation. Viscous & velvety mouthfeel. Peppery & funny palate. Low bitterness, fruit, dried nut & subtle wood notes are shown in the middle & linger into a long sweet finish. Ripe apricot, baked pear & apple flavors followed by memories of nutmeg liquor on the aftertaste. Flavorful, delightful & pleasant drinkability.
