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

11.2oz bottle best by 2018 poured into a goblet
A: Dark brown, somewhat muddy but a latte-colored head that slowly settles to a thin lacing
S: Malt, caramel, brown sugar, some fruit esters, all in great balance
T: Matches the nose but not quite as complex as I expected
F: Medium-bodied but again quite balanced. No hint of alcohol, not too sweet/thick
O: Great beer, now I'm interested to grab a few more from the same batch to follow as they age

330ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Color is a dark rusty brown. Light test yields a dark caramelesque color. Pours with a bit over 2 fingers of head which slowly settles into a thin ring of foam. Smells very malty and of dark fruits with a lingering hint of alcohol. Initial taste is very malty with strong spices and the same dark fruits. The alcohol is detectable but less noticable than the smell led on. Very good overall.
