look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle was set out 1 hour before consumption - Poured from a bomber into a 10 oz. Brandy Snifter. Opaque Black with light brown head - dissipated quickly - with good lacing

Aroma: Chocolate, licorice, Wood, boozey, charred sugar/marshmallow, slight hops (tinge of resiny citrus)

Taste - slightly bitter front with a little burn (from the alcohol no doubt), low-carbonation, - med/full bodied with a syrupy mouthfeel - and a semi-sweet finish. Lots going on here in the flavor - dark cherry/currants, chocolate, cocoa, maltiness, a lot of charred oak.

A pretty big and complex beer.
