Served in a snifter
A - Upon pouring most of the bottle into my snifter I was greeted with an amber colored beer bordering on copper. I generous pour also yielded an inch of beige head.
S - During the pour sweet caramel and toffee malt wafted towards my nose. As I bury my nose in the glass I get some more sweetness in the form of molasses and alcohol.
T - The taste leans on the alcohol which is ever-present in each drink. The sweetness on the nose does not translate to the taste. Some caramel characteristics are noted, but the alcohol quickly makes it an afterthought.
M - It has a moderate mouth feel. It has little carbonation.
O - This is over a year old version of this beer, yet I am still inundated with the aroma and taste of alcohol. I'm wondering if older versions mellow it out on the senses. I'm not saying the alcohol is bad. It is a little too central in the characteristics.
