A-pours a khaki colored head that is thin but creamy. it lingers for a little and creeps down the glass leaving a nice coating as it moves downward. the beer is very cloudy with lots of sediments floating around. the color is a deep burgundy red.

S-the nose brings a toasted bready malt, hints of yeast, backed with sweet fruits, cherry, plum, and notes of banana.

T/M-the taste follows the nose, light toasted flavor with a touch of breadiness and yeast. sweet fruits, dark cherries, plum, notes of alcohol at the finish with a smooth, medium body and high carbonation. crisp finish and hint of warming.

D-very tasty and great body. smooth on the palate and nice flavors that work very well together. the alcohol shows through somewhat; but not much at all.

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

Nice looking brownish beer, with a relatively poor head (perhaps served too cold) that leaves some lacing.
Smell is just great - powerful sugary malts, molasses, honey, some hops, alcohol.
Taste is also powerful, with a heavy, sweet malt, fruity esters, and a cleansing, warming alcohol at the end.
Velvety mouthfeel, very heavy and sweet, I cannot have more than one at a time, but this one is very satisfying.
