Nose is macadamia nut, vanilla, coffee, and alcohol. Ruby edges and little head that doesn't retain. Smells good.
Taste is great. FOr 6.1 this is fairly smooth with very high drinkability. This would be a serious cold weather sessioner, but with a disclaimer. *DOnt start before 9AM!* Bed by 5.
CHewy with some woody/oaky notes, and evaporated cooked down milk caramel with a little alcohol bite, but smooth as silk. A little dark fruit... t his beer comes off as a more high grav beer... it's just 6.1, but tastes more like 7...
Looks average, tastes good, very chewy and drinkable for its abv. Bell's has some good beers and this is one of 'em.
SOme heat here, and every sip seems to offer something new - and very temperature sensitive, complex.
