Overall: Beutiful beer, with a great aroma and taste. I really really enjoyed this beer and would definitley drink it again. I would say it is quite different than other Strong Dark Ales I've had, but not in a bad way.
Appearance: Gorgeous deep ruby red color. About one finger of head which recedes and leaves decent lacing.
Aroma: Inticing. Rich malty notes first, followed by some dark fruit, maybe dark cheeries, a little caramel and chocolate and some very impressive yeast notes.
Taste: Very malty with a cornucopia of flavors underneath. The strongest notes were of caramel, dark fruit and a very nice blend of yeast flavors. The finish is surprisingly dry, with very little alchol flavor/burn for such a large beer.
Mouthfeel: A little chewier up front than I would enjoy, probably the only detraction from the beer. It does have a very nice dry finish however.
Drinkability: Very very good for such a large, complex beer. Very happy that I gave this one a try.
Serving type: on-tap
