3.51/5  rDev -12.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Dark brown to black. Forms a small head that dissappears to nothing. Swirling the beer in my tulip reproduces the head and leaves lots of alcohol legs and lacing on the glass.

S: Mostly dark fruits and some alcohol.

T: I get chocolate right on the tip of the tongue. This is followed by bitter malts and dark fruits. There is no lingering aftertaste.

M: A little syrupy feeling. There is noticeable dryness to the finish.

O: This one is a sipper for sure. It is 9.2% but you don't get much heat. The limitation is the thick syrupy mouthfeel - no way to chug it. That combined with the dry finish make this a nice slow relaxing brew. The Alcohol is a bit more forward as the beer warms (it takes over for the chocolate taste). One is definitely enough of these - they pack a bit of a wallop.
