SWEET. This is one syrupy beer. Very malty dark cherry flavor, with a hint of alcohol.
Have to try to get a head when you pour it, nice lacing. Great flavor, coats the mouth. Smell isn't much to write home about.

I think this would be a great beer to serve after dinner to a few friends, but its a bit sweet to sit down and drink by yourself. I need to keep that in mind if I buy it again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

2013 bottle, 750ml split 3 ways.

A - Dark brown color, just a bit of clarity. Beige head becomes swirly cap and ring pretty quickly and retains as such.

S - Raisin, caramel, alcohol, yeasty and bready tones. Decent but kinda generic flavors for a BSDA, really boozy.

T - Wow, al-kee-hawl. Drinks like it's somewhere in the 18% range. Flavors are a little better than the smell - big dark fruit caramel bomb with some chocolate, pepper, yeast, spices, red wine, but unfortunately the booze really detracts here.

M - Slick but kinda thin-feeling mouthfeel, lowish carbonation. Sweet and hot.

O - Ehhhh. So boozy, and what's underneath all that seems decent at best. Honestly, all in all, a little painful to drink.

4.13/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A- Almost pitch black, light brown head is thin and quickly disappears, nothing more to be expected from a 13%ABV beer

S- A hint of booze upfront, both sweet and roasted aromas, chocolate, maybe liquorice

T- Sweet upfront with a sugary feel and a definitely fixing dose of warming alcohol. Still perfectly balanced with a slightly bitter earthy finish. Notes of chocolate, dark fruits. Very nice

M- Suprisingly light body for the ABV, mostly due to low carbonation. Feels kind of sirupy while filling your mouth with warming comfort

O- A perfect slow sipper for the winter
