Dark brown 1.5 finger head.

Subtle roasted malt aroma. Some caramel.

Complex malty flavor. Lots of sweetness. Reminiscent of a Heath bar. Decent hop flavor.

Really heavy mouthfeel. Chewy and thick.

This is a decent representation of a strong ale with lots of complexity.

Review from 3/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a dark orange amber, nice thick head and some lacing. Mild to medium dark fruits and light malt start with hoppy middle and finish. Hops dominate finish. Somewhat like a mild barley wine. Medium mouth feel, creamy. Avery nice winter warmer.

Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance- Poured a deep mahogany-brown color with a small off white head. The head faded fast with very little lacing left behind.

Smell – Sweet aromas of dried fruit and molasses mixed with a very light slightly roasty aroma of malt.

Taste – Up front there is a malty flavor with a good dose of sweet sugary flavor . These flavors form a base for the rest of the flavors to end and leave from. Right after the initial flavor a slightly nutty flavor comes to the tongue. This leaves soon after it arrives, allowing for roasty notes to come to the tongue. Toward the end the malty roast and sweet flavors mix with some light spice flavors and an ever so light bitterness. While they are slightly bitter they by no means tame the sweeter flavors of the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body is on the above average creamy side with the carbonation on the lower side. Good for the sugary and roasty flavors and higher abv of the beer.

Overall – It has some nice flavors and a good blend of sweet and roastiness. A good and drinkable brew but nothing too fantastic.
