look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

22oz bottle, no date found, poured into a snifter

A-Pours a very dark brown with a frothy one and a half finger dark beige head that has good retention and leaves a few wisps of lace.

S-Dark fruit, molasses, brown sugar, rich malts, smells slightly sweet and also a hint of booze.

T-Sweet, but not cloying; Rich and malty with brown sugar, dark fruit, molasses, a touch of earthy hops, chocolate and a bit of boozy heat. There is a lot going on here, but it works.

M-Full bodied, yet with somewhat crisp carbonation. Lush and coating. Kind of silky.

O-This is an impressive beer. Its a sipper, but each one is enjoyable. The sweetness never gets cloying. I enjoyed this one and hopefully can still pick some more up before they disappear.

Once again, I wish I could grade in quarter points. A 4.25 overall hits this one on the head in my book. But since I can't honestly say its a 4.5 overall, I'll have to give it a 4.

Pours dark brown with red highlights, thick looking and almost opaque, with a finger of light brown head. Head kicks back to a lively skim and thick ring.

Fifteen malts in this baby, and the aroma is full of sweet and roasty complexity. Caramel, toffee, rye bread, hints of chocolate and treacle struggle to remain dominant over hoppy goodness of grapefruit, orange, mango, and pine. Holding it together is a warm alcohol spice vapor.

Madre de dios, what a strong and wonderful taste. Leading the parade is candi sweet, toffee, grapefruit rind, and pine. Alcohol quickly jumps the play, and orange, more pine resin, roasted grain, and a myriad underflavors beyond demarcation end things. Complex, somewhat disjointed, bright, interesting, delicious.

Quite thick, resinous, low carb., with an excellent dry finish.

Another outstanding offering from the numerical nabobs of malt majesty and hops heroics at He'Brew. Highly recommended.
