look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Creamy 1" tan head with very good retention; finally fades to a sheet. Condensed lacing that lasts throughout the glass. Semi-opaque black with a scarlet hue.

A sweetened, toasted malt aroma; molasses, dates, and other nut-like tones.

Toasted malts, dates, almonds; given the aroma and array of flavors for the style the sweetness is surprisingly subdued and very palatable. Well rounded and full of flavor.

Full bodied; Very smooth, coats the palate well. Unobtrusive.

Very easy drinking and a pleasure to drink. A must have in anyone's collection. Probably one of my favorite versions of the style.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a tulip a thick dark brown, almost black color with a stubborn finger and a half of a creamy beige head.

Nose is rich caramel malts and what seems to me like anise. More subtle notes of toffee, nuts, and brown sugar/nutmeg with a very light fruity hops presence in the background.

Spicy and sweet. The complex malt character is dominant; mostly toffee and caramel, but the hops stand out a lot more than they did in the aroma as well. Alcohol presence is also fairly strong for a 6.7% but in now way overpowering.

Thick, chewy mouthfeel Very warm and tasty, but definitely leaves the palate dry.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Deep brown, like a craft root beer, with a nice tan head. Little lacing.

Smell: Toasted malt; caramel notes with a bit of dried fruit

Taste: Lots of wonderful maltiness; chocolate, dried fruit and a bit of coffee. that just lasts and lasts; doesn't take long for the alcohol to assert itself; hops add a nice balancing note; the finish is sweet and slightly bitter

Mouthfeel: Nice and rich; modest carbonation and a lot of warmth

Drinkability: A wonderful sipping beer; take a little in your mouth, let it sit on your tongue and work its magic

This beer pours a dark amber color with red hightlights and a tan creamy head that last the duration, leaving a nice creamy sexy lace behind. The smell of caramel and fruit pour through the nose. Mild hopppiness is present but not strong. The first sip brings fruity noste with caramel and strong maltiness. The clean finish is great and this has to be one of my favorite styles.

Cheers
