12oz can into my Night Shift tulip. Canned 12/05/13.
Pours a robust-looking dark brown with a light mocha one-finger head. Head dissipates quickly but leaves an impressive ring and film atop the beer, as well as plentiful spotty lacing.
Smell is of sweet barley malts, molasses, oatmeal, and a light roasty bitterness. A very light note of smokey wood.
In the mouth, sweet caramel, barley malt, toffee, molasses, and a light note of dark stone fruits. Very subtle woodsmoke as well. Finishes dry and with hints of bittersweet chocolate.
On the fuller end of medium-bodied, low to moderate carbonation. Warming without feeling boozy.
On the whole, a very nice wee heavy. Not my favorite style as a rule, but I can tell a quality example when I taste one.

I wanted to like this beer, but my initial reactions were not positive at all. I gave it a 2.50 rating within the first two minutes. Obviously I deleted that rating. I'm somewhat new to the craft beer scene, and I found the taste syrupy and bitter and kinda gross. But as I approached the bottom, I started to warm up to it and the beer seemed to settled down. I don't think it was simply the alcohol taking effect and me growing acclimated to the new taste, though I'm sure that played a part. But the beer seem to change consistency midway through. I found it quite good at the end. I definitely want to try again
