3.9/5 rDev -5.1%
The beer comes in a dark brown mahogany color with an off white fluffy head.
The aroma has a light sweet caramel and toffee with lots of dried plum and fig. A bit of woody bark from the hops. Not a big aroma.
The flavor follows of a brown sugar sweetness in the front. A hint of dark fruit, then onto an aggressive oxidation. Wet cardboard and leaves. Almost a tannic quality of over brewed tea leaves. Lots of wood qualities on the back.
In the end, I generally have issues with this style, but the medium plus malt backbone helps this beer out. Definitely for those into a bigger more robust Sierra Nevada Bigfoot.

4.19/5 rDev +1.9%
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.
