look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance- Pours a dark brown with a one inch white head that recedes to a foam on top. Little lacing.

Smell- A mixture of wine, prunes, caramel, fresh grains and a hint of roasty chocolate. Nice and complex.

Taste- Creamy sweetness with just a touch of bitterness. A bit of tart dark fruit flavor, allspice, some roasty char and a bite of alcohol hitting on the back end. Lots going on.

Mouthfeel- Moderate body and carbonation, not too dry. Leaves a nice creamy feeling after swallowing.

Overall- Good, complex flavor. Very good beer that is readily available.
