3.55/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: mahogany color, light peeks through with tinting but mosly opaque. Thin head but leaves ample lacing.

Smell: lighter than I would have expected, some raisin bread

taste: plenty of character on the palate - respectable bitterness balanced by plenty of malt. Alcohol a bit noticeable.

Mouthfeel: a big bodied beer, somewhere between chewy and creamy.

Drinkability: moderately drinkable, I'd imagine an excellent winter beer
