4.06/5 rDev +4.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from 750mL bottle into a tulip.
Appearance: deep, rich amber-brown with a slight touch of haze and a strong effervescence. Head pours three thick fingers of creamy tan foam. I think it's quite attractive.
Smell: bready malt aroma with a definite rye character: a little spicy and fruity. There is a little cherry here as well as some caramel and toffee. It reminds me a bit of a subtle quadrupel. I like it.
Taste: much like the aroma, with plenty of raisin, cherry and tobacco character. Rye spiciness is definitely there but it doesn't overwhelm anything. This is quite a fine beer.
Mouthfeel: rich body with a huge carbonation yielding a decent creaminess, if a bit rocky. Quite good.
Overall: this beer really appeals to me. I'm very glad I've discovered it.

3.45/5 rDev -11.5%

750ml capped bottle into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.
Pours a frothy 2 finger cream colored head with good retention. Beer is a dark, almost opaque mahogany. Lacing is thick and layered with great stick. A really nice looking beer.
Nose is peppercorn, caramel, cream, brown sugar, and a creamy, hop bitterness. Moderately aromatic but a bit awkward.
Opens caramel, toffee and brown sugar. Creamy hop bitterness mixed with some coriander, clove and spice in the middle. End is more caramel sweetness balanced by a smooth nuttiness and anise. Aftertaste of spice and nutty notes. Decent.
Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth on the palate but accented going down. Messy finish with a lingering aftertaste. Just a touch heavy but still pretty drinkable.
Solid if a bit strange for the style. A nice deviation but I wouldn't revisit this one.
