look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Pours chestnut colored with 3 fingers of tan head despite a careful pour. Stellar lacing & good head retention
S: Roastyness & not much of it , carob notes as well
T: Roastyness & walnut up front, along with some chicory notes, plus baker's chocolate, pineyness & grapefruit up front. More grapefruit, pineyness & dryness as this warms, a touch of aspirin as well. Finishes with much grapefruit & pineyness, plus roasty notes
MF: Medium bodied with firm carbonation. Carbonation turns creamy as this warms, nice balance & a general warming sensation
Decent Casacadian ale with an imperial slant, doesn't quite turn the corner toward greatness, but drinkable enough. A little less astringency would've helped
Serving type: bottle
