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

Appearance: Very dark mahogany almost brown. A touch over a finger of head of which the head rentention is decent. As the head thins out a good ring of lacing remains.

Aroma: Up front is a solid amount of malty, bready sweetness with a touch of brown sugar. Towards the end is a wisp of fig and prunes grape skin way in the back.

Taste: Malts are certainly front and center in this one. Dark breadiness, ripe fruits prunes, figs and brown sugar showing up again. Mouthfeel is smooth but it does have a light bite even a little bit sticky and chewy.

Notes: This has quite the malty backbone a dam good cold weather beer. Cheers.
