NOTE: this is my FIRST review, so please, take it with a grain of salt, as I am most certainly a novice.
The color is a cherry red. The head dissipated rather quickly, leaving a respectable amount of residue on the glass. I smell almost exclusively malt--though the properly trained nose may smell more. In terms of taste, malt dominates again. There is, however, a good sensation on the front (sweet) sensory neurons of the tongue. A bitter sensation accompanies this. Molasses and sweet rum. Not either thick nor carbonated, but a pleasant medium between the two. Somewhat of a kick after swallowed--this is good. The only REAL problem lies in its high ABV, which results in a decent buzz rather quickly. All in all, I'm proud to refer to this beer as my first reviewed.

Pours a medium brown with caramel highlights and minimal cream head that dissipates to almost nothing.
Deep caramelization, melanoidins. Toasted, nutty malt.
Lots of kettle caramelization, slightly sweet melanoidin character. Enough toasted malt to counter the sweetness and nuttiness to finish things out. Slightly bitter finish. A touch of roast and dark cherries.
Body is fairly full with minimal carbonation and substantial alcohol warmth.
Nice melanoidin character, not cloyingly sweet, but a bit hot.
Serving type: on-tap
