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

Appearance - murky gray brown, looks like dirty sink water. Pour produced one finger of beige head which had average retention.

Smell - lots of alcohol and yeast upfront. Also toasted grains, caramel, and dried fruit, raisins and plumbs.

Taste - massive alcohol presence accompanied by yeast, dark biscuity malt. Big esters and some phenols. Full and round beer with a long finish.

Mouthfeel - aggressive carbonation, heavy bodied, prickly feel. Champagne esque.

Drinkability - not my favorite style but an excellent representation of a Strong Dark Ale and a good beer despite my bias. Its big brother (#10) is much better IMHO. The alcohol in this brew overwhelms some of its more subtle aspects, that said its still fantastic. Well worth a try.
