5/5  rDev +31.2%

12 oz can, 2014 edition, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a pretty, completely opaque, dark mahogany color, with an eighth of a finger of white head that completely dissolved away into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Roasted malt, dried stone fruit, such as raisins, prunes and figs, dark molasses, Belgian yeast and candied sugar. Very nice.

Taste: Delicious! Strong notes of roasted malt, followed by dried stone fruit, such as raisins, prunes and figs. I also get notes of vanilla, candied sugar-like sweetness, and a touch of Belgian yeast funkiness. I love it!

Mouthfeel: Medium to slightly chewy. Very smooth, as there is practically no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 8.3%, there is a very pleasant alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: Another homerun from 21st Amendment, and one of my favorite American versions of a Belgian strong dark ale. Absolutely delicious!

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

12oz can poured into a Redskins pint glass.

A: Dark viscous honey brown. Thick and impossibly inviting to the taste palates.
S: Sweet figs, dark malts, maple syrup, honey comb, brown sugar and prunes.
T: This is one impressive taste monster. The can says it all in taste profile. Vanilla syrup malts comes barreling through first. Cinnamon bites between the oak barrel and lays a nice slicing to the figs and back Prune tongue lashing.
M: Syrupy and refreshing. A perfect balance of carbonation and full mouthfeel. Its got a really great balance that punchs the flavors hard and lays them out wet, like a good Lesbian Porn Flick.
O: One of my top three Seasonal cold brews. This is 21st Amendments best offering to date!!
