look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12 oz. bottle (2012 edition) served into a Snifter.

Very dark ruby with a fantastic head that leaves lots of sticky lacing.

Huge roasted malts, caramel, citrus fruit, brown sugar, booze. Nice & sweet. Sticky hops galore.

Heavier bodied. Rich, smooth, and drinkable.

Fantastic. Central Waters is extremely underrated, so much flavor in this one.

4.19/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours murky dark brown in color with ha thin tan head that has decent retention

Smell has lots of malt forward. Aromas of toffee walnuts and raisins stick out most from the malt. Malt permeates through the entirety of the beer, more slightly sweet grainy notes near the end.

Taste follows the nose with lots of malt flavors forward. Tons of barley hits the tongue first with some flavors of nuts toffee and a bigger grain husk dryness near the finish. A fair amount of detectable alcohol is on the finish.

Mouthfeel is good. Smooth thick mildly carbonated. Perfect sipping beer.
