Had this on draft at roast house in Frederick. Not a fan of Saranac but do buy their variety packs on quantity nights. Their making a big beer had me very curious especially a wee heavy which is a good style for me. Surprisingly good. I am rather surprised that they have a beer I can enjoy not just tolerate. Good flavor and hides the alcohol very well. Overall a quality beer from Matt Brewing, nice.

I should precede this review by stating my constant disappointment every time I try an FX Matt product.
But I do like this. Maybe the planet will start spinning backwards tomorrow.
Poured into trusty duvel oversized tulip glass. It doesn't pour dark, not even close to opaque. A deep amber color with no head that leaves no lacing. Smells only faintly boozy, and very sweet. Taste is sweet with no alcohol burn whatsoever, just the residual flavor of whiskey to remind me it was barrel aged. Not a letdown in terms of flavor, but a thinner mouthfeel and less bold than say, a barrel aged stout.
Staying safe once again, eh FX? Luckily it's $10/4pk, and at that price, a solid treat. Overall a nice example of the next super trendy style. This was cold when I poured it, and while I'm not expecting a journey through flavors as it warms, I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Cheers Utica, this is well done!

Bought a 4 pk from Beers of the World on 5/23/14. Poured into a nonic, served at ambient temp.
appearance: medium dark amber. shortbread colored head. decent lacing.
smell: light whiff of caramel corn and a whisper of alcohol
taste: sweet, caramel, heat from the alcohol
mouthfeel: slippery, soft and silky.
overall: surprising offering from Fx Matt. Decent, if unexciting strong ale.
