For a strong beer, this is pretty smooth. Lots of malt presence in the aroma and taste, some honey sweetness, some hay. Orange amber with small creamy head. Not as bad as expected.

Hazy dark amber with a one finger light beige head.
Sweet bread caramel aroma with a sweet dark fruit flavor.
Lower carbonation and maybe a little less than medium mouthfeel.
Yes, a bit too sweet but still fairly tasty for what it is nonetheless.

Appearance: Pours a deep hazy orange, with a one finger rocky light beige head.

Aroma/Flavor: Fruity, yeast driven aroma, with a touch of acetaldehyde. Some bready malt character as well. Malt character is more present on the palate as caramel and bread with aforementioned yeast character. Less green apple.

Mouthfeel: Medium+ body

Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Smell of raw sweet malt, peach, apple, dried, fruit, and candi sugar. Taste of candi sugar, sweet malt, apple, prunes, figs, dried fruit, and syrup. It is overly sweet with a moderate to full mouth feel.

It is great beer! I like almost exclusively Stouts with deep flavor and this is not that, and yet it is great, the flavor is rich with hints of honey and orange. Id love to have this on a hot day. THe 8.2% ALC by volume doesn't hurt either. If you are on the fence about this one pick it up it is fantastic!

Oddly reddish brown in color with a murky complexion. There's a trace of beige head mostly present around the rim of the glass and barely elsewhere. The aroma is rather off putting with loads of malt and alcohol. The flavor is packed with loads of malt and the alcohol is detectable. The mouth is sticky and chewy.

A little too sweet upfront and a lingering aftertaste. But not terrible and very strong. I'd have it again.

Pours a hazy copper with a frothy cream head that dissipates quickly to nothing.

Booze, dark candi sugar, nutty caramel malt, raisins, and plums form the aroma.

Flavor is less appealing, beginning with a metallic note that lingers throughout. I can tell the base toasted malt is nice, with brown sugar sweetness accenting the underlying notes of dates, figs, and prunes.

Body is a tad light for the style, with fairly low carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.

Could be a really nice beer, but that metallic/tangy character kills it.
