Enjoyed as part of my birthday celebration
Appearance - The beer pours a black/brown colour with a very large frothy light brown coloured head. I can't see much carbonation due the darkness of the beer and there is some faint lacing on the sides of the glass. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it began to dissipate.
Smell - malts, dates, an earthiness, molasses, a smokiness
Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation and it comes across as slightly creamy on the tongue. I can taste lots of malts, dark fruits (dates?), and molasses. I can also pick up on notes of chocolate and a smokiness/earthiness. It finishes with a dark fruit malty after taste and leaves a but of a warming feeling in my chest.
Drink - The alcohol was extremely well hidden and you'd never know it was a 11% beer. The Drinkability is amazing and it makes the perfect winter warmer/sipper beer.

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.
