look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Color: Brown withhints of copper, dark cream colored head. With small bubbles. Head pours high and slowly settles leaving some lacing.
Nose: Spices and bread dough sit just above the surface of giant caramel and complex fruit notes including pears, apples, cherries, plums and a hint of dates, smoke, sweat and a hint of old band-aid with a very slight generic plastic note. These notes that sound more negative are really pretty good here in the small quantity that they are present. I probably won't smell them at all when this warms up a bit.
Taste: Everything and more shows up on the taste the alcoholic heat pulses its way through in elegant waves bringing up the spiciness with each surge and as the wave dies down it shows more woody/smokey dark sugar notes or lighter fruit notes alternately. Surprisingly mouthwatering. I really didn't notice any trace of band-aid or plastic flavor in the taste, which was a very good thing.
Body/Drinkability: Medium light bodied beer that is vey drinkable.
Serving type: bottle
