3.88/5 rDev -15.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Opaque dark brown with slight tan head that dissipated quickly with no lace.
Smell: Red wine aroma mixed with spices. Alcohol presence also detected.
Taste: Fruity plums and grape like flavor followed by very sweet malt and spiciness. Also detected roasted pears. Finished with strong hop bitterness and alcohol warmth.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and dry.
Drinkability: Moderately drinkable but limited by the ABV presence.
Comments: Flavors were very well blended together. The flavors however did not emerge slowly in sequence but came all at once. I enjoyed the beer, but there are others I like better that have (at least from what I perceive) a more multi-dimensional flavor profile.
Serving type: bottle
