3.18/5  rDev -21.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured a deep dark brown with a thin dark tan head that quickly dissipated.

The smell is deep and full with a sweet dark fruit quality, along with hints of chocolate and molasses.

The Flavor is very sweet and malty up front with a big blasted of toasted caramel malts and alcohol. Dark cherry and raison really seem to dominate along with deep dark bready flavors and the alcohol there are a bit of hops in the finish leaving a touch of medicinal bitterness, but still way out of balance even for this style.

The mouthfeel is fairly thick and syrupy.

Overall its drinkable and nothing really off other than the balance, but a bit average.

2.78/5  rDev -31.7%
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
