look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A - very dark in the glass, when held up to the light it's literally blood red. head is foamy but does not last
S - odd musty smell, old ripe fruits, sweet malt, a hint of booze
T - HUGE sweet caramel malt taste, dark smokiness, strawberry jam, rough alcohol edge and more strong malt as it goes on. a little too much on the thick, sweet side for me, a little cloying and lacks bite, but is also complex enough to keep my interests piqued
M - a little syrupy and thick like a really sugary soda. not awful but a little uninviting
O - not a terrible beer, tastes good and gets the job done at 10%, which isn't as detectable as you might think going in. but it's definitely a bit of a malt bomb, and a little more balance could go a long way with this.
