look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Draft at Macs Steele Creek. A quite cloudy brown/amber pour, thin layer of white head. Laced just a bit.

Aroma, some toasted malt and toffee. Herbally hop and tea notes.

Taste, a bigger version of the regular. More roast, anise and hop notes than the regular though. Toffee malt, some woody smoke accenting. Anise and slightly piney bite tithe finish.

Solidly in the middle body wise. Coats pretty well, with a nice level of carbonation.
Seems like this is more balanced than the regular. I prefer the regular, but I think most would prefer this.

Pours into a becker a muddled amber/brown with a half finger lighter tan colored head atop.Alot of caramel and brown sugar in the nose with only faint smoke,some sweet alcohol is noticable as well.Big malty and sweet on the palate with that caramel and brown suger being the main flavor components,the smoke is pretty light and mainly only in the finish,it has a cake-like element to it.Not bad but it's not big on the smoke and the 35 IBU's it has doesn't really come into play in my opinon although I think it would be a decent night cap with a cigar.
