4/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pour - Rather murky brown but a brilliant reddish auburn when held to the light. Lots of tiny little bubbles form a creamy off-white head.

Aroma - Dark brown bread, molasses, brown sugar, coffee, sweet milk chocolate and dark baked fruits.

Taste - Strong, sweet, unfiltered apple cider. That is what comes to mind initially. A good dose of brown sugar and molasses sticks on my tongue in the finish. This is almost juicy in flavor without the smokiness I was expecting.

Overall - Sweet. Very sweet. Lots of dark brown sugary flavors and extremely easy to drink. Definitely worth trying if you've not had a beer made in this style. The hot stones definitely give the malt a big boost.

Would I buy more of it? - It was worth trying once but I doubt I'll buy another bottle as there is too much else out there that I still need to try!

3.21/5  rDev -13.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3

Light tan head that fades away fast. Color is a murky caramel hued brown.

Flavors of dark fruits, molasses, raisins, caramel, and chocolate. A lot of malts. Some grassy hops. Bready. A bit of toffee.

Mouthfeel: Fairly dry. A decent amount of carbonation. Medium to full bodied.

Overall, I wasn't too impressed with this one. It has a bit of a roasted flavor in the finish and it ended kind of dry. Good flavors, just bad mouthfeel/finish.
