4.28/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A - Poured a nice cloudy dark brown color with a massive foamy head that slowly turns to a small lace around the glass. A little sticky
S - This beer smelled of ripe fruit right upfront with a malty tanginess in the back. Further down the glass the alcohol becomes more noticable.
T - Very smooth with a nice malty character very rich with flavor. Ripe fruit is very noticable as well as a milt hoppy bitterness and alcohol.
M - A nice full-bodied beer that was on the lighter side of carbonation level. The malts and smooth texture of this beer gives you a very warming sensation.
D - This is a beer that is meant for sipping but with that in mind it is easily a drinkable beer. The alcohol will settle in time and make this beer more drinkable as it ages.

4.08/5 rDev -5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a caged and corked 25.4 oz bottle into a tulip.
Appearance - a very overcast, deep red, almost brown with huge, foamy beige head that recedes rapidly to a thin layer. Lacing is minimal.
Smell - stone and dark fruit, yeast and a hint of alcohol.
Taste - a tempered sweetness resembling the stone and dark fruit in the nose. Slight spice and tang that elevate the flavor! Easy drinker at 9% that keeps calling for another sip!
Feel - very carbonated, medium body with the alcohol making subtle appearances with each sip. A spicy and tangy bitterness, but a creaminess that adds an interesting layer to this dynamic brew!
Overall - obviously outstanding, but with so many great beers available, I'm not likely to chose this considering the price.
