Poured into a Sam Adams Glass with a decent head, faded fast but a light rim was present throughout. Lacing was present but nothing spectacular. As the bottle says it is a mahogany color.
Smells like a lot of Malt, not surprising as it says it uses a pound per bottle. The alcohol also is present behind the malt.
Tastes good, strong malt characteristics that fall somewhere between roasted and caramelized, more towards the roasted for sure though but with a sweetness added. The alcohol was present also, almost like a faint barrel aging taste with some oak flavors (maybe coming from the roasted malts)
Carbonation is perfect, feels perfect on the tongue. Balanced throughout the mouth, definitely for the alcohol content this is made to be as easy as possible to drink. That said by half way through the bottle the alcohol is definitely becoming more prominent in the taste. Just because of this its drinkability is limited, but really this is not meant to be drank in bulk, much more for savoring. Definitely a good beer, and one that I will definitely have again should nothing new be available.

This beer was a good beer. I liked that it was a bock beer. I liked the malt body this beer, I liked that it was dark. I also liked the fruit taste that it has. I liked that it was sweet. I could taste the raisin fig that it has in its flavor. I would not mind having this beer again if I could find it somewhere where I live.
