look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - nice clarity, deep ruby red to dark copper throughout. About 1 in of cocoa color head, tight bubbles. Lasted for about 1 min then shrunk to almost nothing.

S - starts off with a strong aroma of freshly made bread. Very comforting. Picked up some sense of yeast in the background. As the head subsided, so did the intensity of the bread. After that, picked up a more balanced aroma of bread and malt.

T - deep, rich malt and dark stone fruits, a bit of residual sweetness on the back end. When I aspirated through the mouth, got a bit of fusels. Not sure what that was about as I didn't even get a hint of warming when drinking it normally. Not much complexity, but that was good.

M - full bodied, but not overwhelming or lingering. Similar in body to a dark roasted coffee.

O - a very nice evening beer to relax with, but not quite a fireside beer. A beer that I would limit to 1, maybe 2 to a sitting, because of its richness. Highly recommend letting the beer warm to cellar temp before drinking.

Serving type: can
