From Notes.

The beer pours very little head that dissipates quickly. The beer itself is an opaque ruby brown. It has a pretty good look.

The smell and taste share the same notes but the taste is the better of the two. Both have oak notes and bits of vanilla with a slight alcohol note. Also, a nice dark fruit note with rye. The difference is that the rye doesn't appear in the taste but in the aftertaste and the notes in the taste are a bit more vivid. Also, slight hop notes in the aftertaste as well.

The feel is good. Heavy bodied with a thick and smooth body. Slight alcohol burn in the finish.

Overall, a very good beer that was definitely worth the expense and long trip to Cambridge from JP. Recommended.
