This would have been my first rated beverage but I hadn't been a member yet for the required 24 hours...so I got another bottle.
A-Poured a deep brown, forming a thick beige 2-finger head that left light lacing.
S-Fig and raisin w/other lighter fruits and berries, dates, tobacco, light cocoa, toffee, very faint hops, grapes, spice, and toasty biscuit. There is also a warming alcohol wafting off.
T-Upfront, it is toasty w/dried fruit and wildberry; dates, chocolate, and spice shine through at midpalate, and the slight hop bitterness balances the finish out w/warm, chocolaty alcohol that reemerges.
M-The balanced, creamy smoothness is top-notch, and the carbonation is just right. Every sip makes you feel good.
D-Amazingly smooth, and delicious. I'd like to try aging a few bottles to see the result.

A : Dark brown. Poured with a lively half inch head that quickly disappeared. Looks like what I'd come to expect the style to look like, but nothing remarkable different.
S: New to trying put names to smells in beers, but I get some plum and what I'll call other dark fruit, and a breaded smell. Not an explosion of different smells to me, but enjoyable none the less.
T: Taste follows the nose without the bread, with the alcohol being the main addition. Smelled a little better than it tasted to me which I guess means the alcohol did not benefit the taste.
M: Bubbly effervescent as I'm accustomed to and enjoy with the style and enjoyable. Not experienced enough doing reviews to nail down why I know I prefer the Westy 12 mouthfeel to this.
O: A great example of the style, and a quality brew. Overall ranking likely impacted by this not being my favorite style of beer.
