3.6/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I enjoyed this beer from the comfort of my own living room. From the 1pint 6oz bottle to a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown color with a nice thick, billowy tan head that stuck around for a little bit.

Smell: Caramel, roasted malt and cocoa.

Taste: Sweet malts and a little floral and woody at the end. Interesting.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and medium bodied.

Drinkability: Didn't taste the alcohol which is nice, but the floral finish kind of through me off. Would try again, but wouldn't seek out.

Bomber into a matching FFF teku. The brew appears a very dark brown color with a finger of khaki head. Rising bubbles of carbonation maintain a thin film across the top of the brew. As the cap fades, it leaves some spots of lacing effect on the glass. A swirl revives about a finger back to the surface. When held to the light, the brew shows a brilliant color of ruby clarity through the body.

The aroma is a bit nutty blending with a grainy quality and a suggestion of chocolate covered raisins. There is almost a lactose sort of milky sweetness across the backend of the nose that fades into a faint oxidized touch. As it warms up, a bit more focus on dark fruity aspects emerge (plum, dates, more raisins) but it never smells like it is the listed 10% abv.

The taste pretty much reiterates the aromatics. Chocolate covered raisins, a hint of coffee bitterness blends into almost a milk chocolate sweetness. Some raisins, plums, prunes and dates. Some nutty grain flavoring persists into the aftertaste. Each time I take a sip, there is a hint of fruity alcohol flavoring but it never comes out in a way that suggests it is as strong as the label lists.

This is a medium to fuller bodied brew with a moderate amount of carbonation. It is pretty darn easy drinking for 10% but is lacking a bit in character. I am surprised by how linear this brew is. Pretty much just a strong brown ale with not much else to offer. I dont know how I let this much time slip by before opening this, perhaps it was better when fresh?
