look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours brown in color with a thin deep tan head that retains nicely.

Smell is good there is a big amount of sweet toffee and rich malt aroma on the front end along with some dark fruit aromas of dates and fig. Butterscotch yeast aroma works well to blend the super sweet malt and fruit aroma.

Taste is good. There is a big malty sweetness accompanied by a semi sharp husky flavor and moderate bitterness. More faint flavors of dark fruit are near the end.

Mouthfeel is good. Thick, sticky , sweet, slightly dry and bitter. Big feel for a big beer
