4.3/5 rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: Pours a deep dark brown, almost black, with red hues as the beer thins. There is a massive dark khaki colored head that takes forever to settle. The foam lingers indefinitely as the beer drinks, and there is some nice lacing.
S: The nose is raisin bread, a bit of dirt, light banana, and light spice. It doesn't smell bad, but the dirt note is inescapable.
T: It starts out sweet with raisin bread, plums, light brown sugar, and earth. I get sweet and spice in the middle, as the clove notes begin to take shape. Mild banana throughout. The back end gets spicy with more clove and high carbonation.
M: Full bodied beer. It's sweet to start, and has a great balance of sweet and spice in the middle. The beer covers the palate and moves off with lingering spice. It's a bit cloying in the finish.
O: Nice beer, but I don't think I could drink this all the time. It's good for it's style. It has a great flavor profile and finishes nice and spicy, as I like it.
