drank at room temp. Bigtime alcohol presence. really no smell whatsoever. no hop presence. Lots of malt - malt and warm alcohol that burns your tongue. a little smoky taste to make me think of a cross between an Imperial stout and a doppelbock and a wee heavy. I will be drinking the hell out of this beer, every christmas!

The beer comes in a copper brown color.
The aroma has sweet caramel, a woodiness, a bit of spice, maybe even some citrus.
The flavor is overwhelming of bitterness with a bit oaf rich deep dark caramel and toffee. The bitterness is of wood chips, wet tobacco, and some bite.
It has a nice full creamy mouthfeel.
Overly bitter and one note.

Been looking to try this for almost a year! 22 oz bottle, about 5 weeks fresh, poured into Vault Brewing Co tulip.
Pours a copper, brown opaque dark body, with a decent of head light cream color which sticks around a while with decent lacing.
I honestly can't smell much on this beer. Some pale spiced malts, a little nutty, but honestly not a whole lot. Not offensive, just not aromatic.
Taste is interesting... Malty spicy backbone, not a lot of hops, mildly bitter, alcohol is noticeable. Kind of bland to be honest.
Mouthfeel is a heavy medium, smooth, low-medium carbonation, sticky finish.
Overall, I wasn't impressed with this, was really hoping for it to be better. Drinkable but average.
