4.25/5 rDev +13.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25
A- pours a dark ruby-red color with a huge creamy head with long retention and patches of lace sticking down the entire glass
S- sweet caramel-toffe malt, dark fruit and figs, grapefruit zest & citrus hop
T- much more malty profile than expected, but its very good. Strong flavors or caramel-toffee, dark fig & prune. Citrus and pine hop flavors provide a nice balance, but the malt takes center stage on this one. The finish is slightly sweet with a dark fruit and resinous pine linger
M- medium body and carbonation, foamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish with just a bit of alcohol bite at the end
O- this one had a few months on it so I don't know if that influenced the malty sweetness or not, regardless I really liked it. This drinks more like an imperial amber/red but one of my recent favorites from SA.
