look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Looks like dark strawberry jam. Lots of sediment. Whitish tan head turns into an excellent solid lace of head.
Smell: Grape and fruit and spice.
Taste: Grape, Pepper, spice. Nice, warming alcohol.
This is incredible. I had forgotten how excellent it really is. The look is so fresh, and it's very neat to see a best-used-by date of January 2018. Often, at least in my opinion, beers that cross the 10% ABV line lose a lot of the beer quality for sheer alcoholic punch; basically, an unusual wine taste. This is one of the exceptions. The smell and taste have a sweet and spicy theme. The first smell is grape, and then followed by pepper and spice. I believe the taste does the same, but the pepper is the dominant note. This brew is hard to beat. OF course I will get this again.

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.
