look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

I'm not sure why an additional difference between this and the barrel-aged version is the style it's listed as, but oh well. Notes are from the Fall of 2012, about 5 months ago, but complete.

The label's color almost speaks to the beer's, as it leans toward brown but has very much a red shade to it from the thickest to thinnest parts of its body. A big creamy off-white head is frothy and tops off at just less than 2 fingers. Lacing is chunky and sticks in very good quantity.
Both creamy and fruity sweetness run out of this beer's aroma, with spiciness to boot. Dark cherry, clove, must and thick, dark breads are foremost. Alcohol is a bit aggressive, a bit on the ethanolic side, and a medicinal kind of note lingers a little.
There's not as much sweetness on the tongue, though again a lot of dark fruit notes come out. Some of that's dryer, come sweeter. Chalky, musty notes add dryness from the yeast, which also adds lots of clove spiciness. Caramel's there in the malts with the bigger bready tone, and a little of a not-quite-smokiness, like the tasty smokiness in certain caramels, accompanies it. It's a little bit phenolic, and the alcohol's not shy, but it comes together.
The body's got a nice strength and fluff to it, keeping up a consistent crispness while managing a smoothness that rolls nicely on the tongue. Alcohol isn't too sharp, and surprisingly not considering its effect on the smell and taste.
