Wisconsin

4.5/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured down the center of a Left Hand balloon glass from a 12oz bottle.

Appearance: A thick, dark amber pour settles with three fingers of light khaki head. The head slowly recedes to as little as half a finger and there's some lacing if you tilt the glass. I forgot to check for yeast in the bottle so there's quite a fair amount of dark yeast in the glass.

Smell: Fresh bread, earthy malts, ripe fruits (cherries, figs), candied sugar, and alcohol.

Taste: Plenty of earthy malts, some candied dark fruits, molasses, and some heat from the alcohol. Honestly, this is a very complex brew and it might be a little too much for my modest palate. Either way, it's very tasty.

Mouth: A thick body with moderate carbonation. Combined with the high ABV and the complexity of the flavors, this is definitely a beer you want to sip.

A very complex yet tasty brew. I bought several with the intent of aging them, and I recommend that you buy two or three and do the same.
