4/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a dark almost black color, the only thing keeping me from mistaking this for a stout is the reddish brown tint around the edges and through the rest of the beer when held to light. Head was initially thick, a dark off-white color, and faded leaving a lace throughout the rest of the beer when drank. Sweet, toasty malt aromas hit the nose first, some alcohol is present as is raisin, chocolate, a hint of currant and a slightly vinuous smell.

Taste isn't quite what the scent would suggest, the alcohol is well masked, even when warm, and the sweet caramel, roasted malt flavors and bite are definitely up front, but they don't dominate. Its dry on the palate, with notes of currant and dark fruit.

Mouthfeel and drinkability are both good. I feel like this beer is barely hanging on to 4.0 ratings in all categories, I can't justify giving it a 3.5 in any individual category, but if asked to rate this beer overall on a 1-5 scale I'd give it about a 3.77 not a flat 4.0.

4.21/5  rDev +16.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bought a single bottle from Beers of the World for $ 1.99 on 2/23/14. Poured into a Samuel Smith's pint glass, served cool.

Appearance:Deep, dark blackish brown with a few reddish highlights at the bottom with a 1 finger khaki head, lacing doesn't last very long.

Smell: very deep roasted Barley and then more roast and then more, maybe a touch of fusel.

Taste: Barley syrup, followed by licorice, lots of licorice.

Mouthfeel: solid, good

Overall: good looking, intoxicating aroma, rich yummy taste, decent mouthfeel. Drink. Enjoy.
