A: Pours a deep chestnut color with a one finger foamy tan head. Settles to a nice foamy cap over the beer.

S: Lots of fruity dark malt flavors throughout. Light bubblegum, caramel, marshmallow, light red grape and some Belgian yeast.

T: Lots of rich malty sweetness. A touch of booze upfront with some grape nuts, raisin, some faint earthy hops, Belgian yeast and some breadiness on the finish. Good stuff.

4.61/5  rDev +9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Brown. Maybe a very dark caramel. A nice lace of head.
Smell: Honey, butter, malt, and maybe some fruit.
Taste: Sweet, peppery, alcohol, and malt.
Mouthfeel: Full big body and moderate carbonation.

I love this brew. It is very malty, and somewhat intense...however in excellent ways. The sweetness and pepperiness combine to give this an all around excellent drink with an alcohol intensity that doesn't give that cheap vodka aftertaste. This is a must get.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance – Pours a clear dark brown red color. Has a huge head that sticks around a long time, and lots of lacing.

Smell – A sweet malty alcohol scent. With a little spice.

Taste – A slightly spicy very malty flavor. Kind of simple, but very tasty.

Mouthfeel – Super smooth and creamy, with good carbonation. Super easy drinking for 10.5% abv.

Drinkability – To me, this beer was much better than expected based on its rating. I really enjoyed this, and will look for it again.
