look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Color is pretty much beer bottle brown. Quite strong at 9.4% ABV. This beer is malty with hints of cooked brown sugar and molasses yet the sweetness is quite well reserved. Lots of dark fruit and fig like flavors give this beer quite a bite. Overall it has a strong roasty flavor and smell. This is a good cold weather beer due the high ABV and the dark autumn like flavors.
