Pours a clear reddish brown with a full thick off white head that leaves tons of lacing.

Aromas of sweet malt, alcohol soaked dark fruit, and pine hop characters.

The flavor is syrupy sweet malt along with a flash of hops that keep the sweetness from being cloying.

Full bodied with just enough carbonation.

With warmth, this drinks almost like a barleywine; rather than a hoppy strong ale/DIPA as it started out.

Drinkability: One a day would do the trick for a happy hop head that also loves sweet malt. Less alcohol would make me go back to this beer more often.

A = Crystal clear copper color. The head was moderate but the lacing is still sitting at the top of my glass even though it is half gone.

S = Sweet and malty

T = Definitely taste the alcohol in this. One of those beers that I didn't realize it was 9.9% until I took a taste. Taste the sweetness of the brown sugar too.

M = Smooth on my tongue. Combination of a lingering malty and bitterness taste after I swallow.

O = A nice beer to age probably. A great beer to have on a cold Autumn/Winter night after a hard day of fun. Pour into a snifter and drink in front of the fire.
