Served in a snifter glass from a 22oz. bomber.

Appearance: Hazy brown body with medium to light bubbles on the body. Head is an off-white rising to maybe quarter inch at best with a hard pour of course. It flattens out a bit after two or three sips. Still looks good with its mahogany cloudiness.

Smell: Hard wine scent with deep grapes.

Taste: Complex sweet. Almost toffee like taste with a heavy alcohol finish...honestly I think it's top notch.

Mouth: Sticky with a maple syrup finish. Slightly thick with a butterscotch notes...Yum.

Overall: Very good brew...honestly one of the better ones I have reviewed in recent months and highly recommend in grabbing if you see it...I know I will. Salud!

Dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma of raisins malt and booze. Taste is boozy malty dried prunes, raisins and molasses. Finish is hint of bitter and caramel.

Bomber bottle

Big and bold with smooth caramel malts all over. Warming, well crafted and easy drinking. Well worth a try. Great on a winters night
