Poured into a Delirium snifter on 2/2/13

Shared at a tasting by Spider889. Thanks Chris.

A) Dark, dense rusted brown. Not much in terms of foam; just a little around the collar. Sediment in the bottom.

S) Molasses, brown sugar, oak char, dark berries, leather, caramel, toffee. For 14.5% abv it doesn't smell boozy at all.

T) The taste is hotter with alcohol all over the finish. Sugary and sticky. Toasted bread, molasses, caramel, nail polish and modest oak.

M) Full, slick sugary/alcohol feel. Carbonation is quite low. Overall, it is too heavy of a feel.

D) Drinkable as a slow sipper. It is nice in that it isn't incredibly hot.
