look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from the bottle (no date) into a tulip...

A - A dark orange look with a small head that dissipates immediately and no lace, meh

S - Difficult for me to pull any aroma out of this. I get some muted caramel and maybe some dark fruits but that is about it

T - Really shines here... Toffee, molasses, candy and raisins stand out big time. Pretty complex

M - Great body, silky smooth and a heavy booze presence

O - This beer is a bit of a monster. The 10% wacks you in the face. Definitely a sipper. The taste and mouthfeel are outstanding. Reminds me of an alcoholic fruit roll up. Good stuff.

A little surprised this is ranked so low. The appearance isn't anything to write home about. A bit lighter than expected, and pretty murky; not much head. The money is in the aroma and flavor. Super solid taste. Nice sweet caramel goodness with an appropriate hit ness. Dark fruits and all. Way good. The feel is also nice. Creamier than expected. Feels really good in the mouth. Overall, highly recommended. My bottle was aged two years. So that might make a difference. If you can get a bottle, then sit on it and drink it later.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a murky brown apricot copper color?A thinner slight off white head settles into a frothy mass.Fruit and caramel toffee mainly in the nose,quite alcoholic.Big chewey and yes alcoholic on the palate,cutting through the alcohol is dark fruit and more cramel toffee with a big hit of that warming alcohol in the finish all the way down.This feels all of 10% but it's made to sip and savor and it's great for that,I like it.
