4.24/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Side poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance - Pours a deep mahogany with intense carbonation present in the pour. Bubbles racing to the head of the brew, which is a two-finger soapy head. Only stays around for a minute, minimal lacing. But while the head is present, this is an impressive presentation. Sediment in the bottle and glass.

Smell - Sweet caramel malts, dark fruits - figs, raisins, prunes, etc. just what you would expect from this style. Big and robust.

Taste - Much like the nose, although there is an underpinning of toasty breads as well. The sweet malts sweep the palate for the first half, replaced by the dark fruits.

Mouthfeel - Disappointing. Heavily carbonated and kind of light, in my opinion, for the style. Dry and crisp, but kind of light bodied considering.

Overall - This is an excellent brew. However, there are three or four of this style which are readily available that I would spend my money before this one. That being said, it is certainly worth a try.
