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

Appearance: Poured from the 750 ml bottle into a goblet. Initially poured only 1/2 the bottle. Beer is a very dark brown, cannot see through. Pour produced a thick, white, head. Faded rather quickly to a solid cover on the liquid. Leaves as little lacing.

Smell: Rich roasted malts, a touch of a sweetness to the smell as well. Aromas of dark fruits, a little plum, raisin. Some alcohol aroma sneaks through as the beer warms up.

Taste: Taste is somewhat complex, changing as the beer is consumed and warms a little. Simply put it is mostly malty, nothing really giving a hop bitterness. A little sweetness. Taste falls in line with aroma. This is a big beer with high ABV, yet the alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, limited natural carbonation. Smooth, a little slick going down. Alcohol warms me up, yet it does not burn the throat going down.

Overall: A very good beer. Got this bottle at a one time introductory deal of $7.99. Well worth the price. Would be better on a winter night. One bottle is enough for the night.
