4.7/5  rDev +12.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 5

This pours dark brown wiyh reddish tones. The head that manages to form dissapates quickly.
Smells of caramel, toffee, mincemeat, vanilla.
Malty flavor of dark fruit, bread, somewhat earhty on the finish with alcohol esthers following.
Very thin mouthfeel, and the flavor does not linger. Ultimately, easy to drink.
I only feel that the body of the beer needs to be amped up a bit, but an exceptional beer otherwise.

Massachusetts

4.41/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured a dark chocolate brown, almost opaque color into a snifter with a 1/2F head.

Aroma: plum, raisin, fig, which continue strong throughout the tasting.

Mouth feel: pleasantly carbonated- more than other wee heavies I have tasted.

Taste: smooth fig, plum and raisin with a light alcohol finish.

This is a classic wee heavy. The flavors are similar to American beers in the same style which are only slightly more pronounced. This is an impressive beer- low ABV, yet a sipper. The body is lighter than American styles, making it easier to drink.

This is the real deal.
