Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a deep amber/copper color with a one finger tan colored head. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the heavy of toasted grain and sweet dark fruit of raisin and prune. There is also a big and heavy boozy smell of a Scotch whisky as well as a lighter aroma of a toffee sweetness giving it a big and sweet boozy smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a flavor of roasted malt and a brown bread taste. There is a big sweetness of caramel and brown sugar up front that transitions more toward a toffee like flavor as a buttery taste joins the flavor as well. Along this time some other sweeter dark fruit flavors of raisin and figs hit the tongue, with the first taste of a bit of alcohol mixed within. The alcohol is light with the dark fruits taking on a light rum soaked flavor with a slight amount of smoke also coming to the tongue to produce a somewhat whisky like boozy taste. Toward the very end some notes of a bittering earthy hop join the tongue and will all the other flavors leaves a rather sweet taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and smoother side with the carbonation level being lower to moderate side. The creamier body and thinner carbonation suit the style rather well with the smooth flavor at the end making for a very easy drinking brew.
Overall – A sweet and tasty brew with a great drinkability at 8 % abv.. A nice drinker and one to try.
