4.25/5  rDev -1.8%

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy dark brown with a big, pillowy head that dissipated slowly
into a cap, and left a moderate amount of lacing on the glass. There was a small amount of
sediment on the bottom of the glass.

Aroma: Brown sugar, molasses, marble bread, chocolate, dates, and a touch of caramel and
vanilla were all present on the nose.

Taste: Malty sweetness was up front, very yeasty in the middle, and finished with a candy
sugar sweetness. No alcohol was detected.

Palate: Body was unusually light for a 9.2% ABV beer. Carbonation level was about average.
Molasses and brown sugar made for an aftertaste that lingered for a little while afterwards.

Overall: This beer is excellent! Alcohol was hidden very well. My biggest complaint is the light
mouth feel, but the taste is enough to make someone overlook that. Highly recommended
from this guy!
