look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A-red brown color with a smallish off-white head and some lacing

S-brown sugar, raisins, little malt, toffee

T-caramel malt, raisins, brown sugar, toffee, hint of spice, moderate bitterness

F-medium body with light to moderate carbonation, crisp, but a little cloying

O-too much sweetness and raisin for me

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: Clear dark copper with a bunch of orange thrown in for good measure. No head, cap, collar, nothing. Minimal carbonation on the pour. A bit darker than is typical, but not unexpected given the listed boil time.

Smell: A solid punch of alcohol soaked raisins. Miscellaneous dark fruit with some fig and plum and red grape, and even more raisins. Crazy caramelized malts. A bunch of caramel, toffee, and even some molasses. Crazy sugar. Caramel malt with a slight roasted malt. Sherry and raw sugar. Minimal hop influence, maybe some herbal notes and citrus.

Taste: Sweet and then sweet. Raisins soaked with booze. Straight alcohol heat through the entire sip. So much raisin and ripe plum. Some grape skin and almost honey. Caramel and rich toffee. Slight bitterness coupled with a hint of citrus and herbal hop flavors. Slight alcohol spiciness. Molasses and even more raisins. Straight sherry as it warms. Some slight roasted elements as well. Decently complex.

Mouthfeel: Smooth medium pushing full body with negligible carbonation. Slightly dry.

Overall: Probably in Hufflepuff.

Now with two scoops of raisins and sprinkled with sugar. Hard to finish a bottle.
