A - Dark as night poured, leaves a murky reddish brownish foam head. Leaves a ring around the glass that doesn't go away here.

S - Nose has good complexity here, you can smell the heat from the base beer on the nose with slight hints of red wine which shined more as the beer warmed. You can smell chocolate, cinnamon notes as well as the fudge graham cracker notes coming through.

T - Taste follows the nose here. Notes of the red wine character really shined as it warmed. Chocolate, fudge, cinnamon, peppers, cocoa. Love this variant. It's slightly more complex than JD but not quite up to par.

M - Medium bodied here, slightly thicker than JD cake but smooth nonetheless and relatively easy to drink.

O - Not quite what JD Cake is, but this is still a world class beer and it drinking phenomenal right now. Not quite as hard to land as JD so it makes it more appealing to go after. World Class
