4.08/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

330ml bottle 10% abv

Appearance: Lovely russet brown colour with red highlights when held to the light, small off white head (lasts most of the way down, leaving reasonable lace)

Smell: Very malty, followed by a nice whiff of hops, also hints of molasses and tobacco and a faint alcohol smell.

Taste: Again malty flavours dominate, molasses and smokey notes, followed by a nice hop presence at the swallow.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy bodied beer, with low carbonation.

Drinkability: How on earth do these guys make a 10% beer so drinkable. The alcohol is very very well hidden and if you don't watch yourself, you can easily drink about 5 too many....

I recently opened a 2 year old bottle and these are my notes:

Appearance: Clear, copper red body topped by a massive, creamy beige head that displays good retention and actually leaves some good lace. 4

Smell: Mmmm, this smells delicious! Sweet caramel, a fair amount of vanilla, red fruit, light molasses and a light nuttiness. The nose could be a little stronger. 4

Taste: Malty sweet, notes of red fruit, some caramel and a light bitterness in the finish. 3.5

Mouthfeel: Medium-full bodied, with a moderate level of fairly smooth carbonation. 4

Overall: Hazard 10 has aged surprisingly well! I am going to have to buy a few more bottles to put away!!! 4
