First Beer Advocate review... so I wanted to start out with a killer beer.
330ml bottle poured into 1st use Flying Saucer snifter.
A - Dark chocolate brown with crimson overtones. It poured with a strong light brown head that went away quickly. Impressive pour.
S - The smell of fruit comes through in every whiff. Also, subtle touches of cherry. I also sensed a good kick of spice, along with a rum-like alcohol burst.
T - The power of this beer really shines in the taste. You can taste the fruit and the molasses hints in every taste. Also, the alcohol taste kicks in early, but the spicy flavor keeps it good throughout. The malt flavor is strong and sweet enough that it perfectly levels out the alcohol.
M - The carbonation makes this beer for me. For me, this is what makes this such a drinkable beer for one with such a high alcohol content. Even with the strong alcohol flavor in every sip, you are left with a great taste and aftertaste.
O - An incredible beer... this is one that is deserving of all the good press. You can tell that time and effort have been put in every bottle. This is a beer that deserves time and respect.
