served from a 12 oz bottle in a pint glass

A: very dark golden brown when held to the light, Head two finger width but fades quickly.

S: licorice and caramel, strong alcohol smell typical of the style

T: sweet licorice and alcohol in a good way. A nice spicy hop but not bitter at all. Hint of clove.

M: Thick and heavy, coats the mouth in a sweet warming spice.

O: Very good variation of the style strong but doesn't turn the stomach. Great beer for the price. 6 pack instead of a 4 which is typical for this style.
