look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- ruby brown opaque body with a khaki decent sized head
S-tons of malty sugars definitely some prominent phenols slight spice and flower notes intermingle with each other
T- tons of bread comes in at first followed by brown sugary malts same phenols as the nose tons of things going on here this fills up the whole palette its hard to discern all the things going on here but its all good things!
M- really smooth and creamy in a sense, full bodied.
D- the 9% in a 25 ounce bottle can creep up on you watch yourself
