12oz bottle from canadianghetto in the TX BIF box.
Based on the nose I would have guessed north of 9.8%, there is a strong alcohol presence here.
The foam comes on strong, deep tan, small bubbles, but is gone before the beer has settled in the bulb. No real lacing, some thin bubbles rim the glass.
The smell on this reminds me of the Southampton IRS when it's fresh - really malty, over the top booze, dark chocolate and cherry.
Not a strong alcohol note in taste or the finish, but it is there. This is a touch creamy - with strong carbonation. This could be aged, likely with good effect. A bit of 'mello' could take this from solid to well above average.
Mouthfeel is fine, certainly keeping with the style.
