look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Deep hued, garnet colored body with a thin yet persistent, creamy, off-white head. Caramel, raisin, and booze scents. Heavy, syrupy flavors; raisin, anise, licorice, booze, caramel and burnt sugar; bitter. Dense, full-bodied mouthfeel; lots of residual sugars.

Big and bold, tempered by an even-keeled smoothness and respectable complexity. Rather tame in the looks and smell departments, and the feel has a somewhat weak, watery aspect, but taste-wise, a lot is offered. Worth checking out...

One of the most enjoyable wee heavies I've had in awhile. Nose is soft, but reveals a rather complex union of bready biscuit malt, rich medium-dark caramels, and hints of a leathery peat. The taste is more of the same, as fully toasted malts finish with dark caramels balanced by just enough hops to eliminate any cloying but also not make it bitter. It also softens up a bit as it warms in the glass, adding touches of toffee and lighter caramels. This is one fine beer.
