Pours a murky, deep chestnut color with a surprising amount of sediment floaties left in the bottle. A small, soapy off-white head settles to a wispy covering. Smells of dark fruit, spice, and oak over a rich caramel foundation and some sharpness from the booze. Honestly, upon first sip, this is way smoother and tastier than I was expecting. While most of the hops have faded from the aroma, they are still apparent in the flavor, though not in a big, brash, "American" sort of way. Earthy, tea, pine, and floral hops fuse with oak, vanilla, toffee, and moderate, spicy alcohol. Lingering oily resins. Oh yeah, this is quite satisfying. Smooth, chewy, not overly bitter or sweet. Nice!
