look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Big slight tan head that seems to stick around and leaves lace all over the glass. Dark brown with amber hue.
Smell- Dark fruit, raisin and bread come through with a spiciness from the noble hops.
Taste- Caramel malt with raisin and fig notes and a bready malt that comes through just before the bittering hops lay a spiciness on the back of the tongue. Warming alcohol heat that does not come through in taste except for maybe a little sweetness.

A: Poured into a stange from the neat flip top bottle. Pours a brown color with a minimal head that recedes quickly into a patch of tiny bubble in the middle, a fair amount of carbonation can be seen clinging to the inside wall of the glass.

S: Smells very much of dark fruits, plums, dates, figs, some maltiness is present with some caramel sweetness and some alcohol notes.

T: Sweet notes of caramel malts, and light notes of dark fruits, not a whole lot else that I am picking up on.

M: Creamy, low amount of carbonation which works well with the flavors going on. Smooth on the tongue, lingers for a fair period of time on the tongue.

O: OVerall, very good, I would definitely get this again, it is very enjoyable and the higher ABV doesn't overwhelm the flavors at all. Would definitely buy this again.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Looks like chocolate milk. Very dark hazy brown. Lacing is there but not extremely prominent. Some sediment floating around.

Smells of plums, raisin, and wine with a pungent alcohol smell.

The taste is almost exactly like the smell. Very deep raisin/bread taste. Theres a hint of smokiness as well. The alcohol is there but not overpowering. Mouthfeel is very sticky, slightly carbonated. The taste lingers LONG after you've swallowed.

This beer is a bit hard for me to drink. But, I can't say it's really my style of beer. I can appreciate it for what it is, though. I'd like to try some other beers of this style.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

P: Murky strong brewed tea tea appearance with floating sediment. A fast vanishing dollop of opaque head.

S: Brownie mix, almost rotting bananas, sugar malt, rum raisins, plums, Mexican pound cake, hints of medicinal aroma, earthy musty wood notes and spicy yeast. Booze is astringent but faint with a more dominate presence once swirled.

T/M: Has a nice aged palate with sugary but smooth malt. Loads of dark fruits and dinginess. Creamy body that fizzes over the tongue to create a great mouthfeel. Finishes with a similarity to homemade plum wine.

O: Great balance of flavors that are smooth and palate pleasing. The aged presence really shines here. This is a beer I will be gravity g more of soon. Cheers!

A- very dark amber, thin white head fades to to a very thin rim. Small flakes floating in the bottom.

S- caramel, raisins, bread, with a very prominent alcohol finish

T- Caramel and raisin, like it smells, but cut with a high bitterness. The Alt background of high bitterness is apparent and also necessary in this beer, helps keep it drinkable and smooth. Slight alcohol heat in finish.

M- carbonation is not very diffused in the beer, it finishes smooth, the alcohol thins it out a bit too

O- very full flavor, glad it only comes in 11 oz bottle

Flip top bottle. Pours a thick dark mahogany brown with no head. Aroma of caramel malt, some dark dried fruit esters, brown sugar, yeast and bready notes fill the senses. Taste same as aroma with some sweet liquorices flavor, alcohol and mild bitter notes. Palate is a full body, sweet thick sticky mouth feel, mild carbonation. Finish is sweet caramel malt, very yeasty and bread, with some dark fruit, brown sugar, ending with a dry boozy lingering sweet bitter liquorices flavor. Overall a good strong flavorful brew.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a murky sort of dark brown. Tall fizzy and fluffy light brown head (almost tan). Head fades at a medium pace, leaving absolutely no lacing behind. Decent retention.

S: Very malty. Grainy bread. Some raisin, especially when swirled. A touch toasty too.

T: Again, malty and sweet. Heavy, thick toasted bread with raisins. A touch of cherry. A little bit of booze bite on the back end. Touch of herbal and spice notes, especially between sips. Cannot overstate the bread and raisins flavor. It tastes like someone blended up raisin bread and served it to me. It's about as thick too.

M: Surprisingly heavy. Thick and smooth. Low carb. Nice.

O: Interesting brew. Very thick, very heavy. It feels like some 15% monster. I cannot overstate how heavy it is for an 8.5% brew, by far the heaviest for the ABV. Nice strength and balance of flavors. A malty, sweet sipper for sure. I enjoyed it a lot.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - Chunky sediment in a dark ice tea body. Fine, light khaki head pours a half finger high with nice retention and ok lace.

S - Great nose; smooth and well balanced. Raisin, black cherry, caramel, and a really a nice touch of smoke.

T - Wow, restrained and modest but with outstanding complexity and quality. Black cherry, rich toasted malt, milk chocolate, cream soda, plum jelly, soft oaky booze, and just a hint of hardwood smoke.

M - Creamy, smooth, and full bodied. Caramel and a light acidity on the backend.

O - Superbly drinkable with world class balance.
