A: This poured a nearly opaque light black with a moderate amount of thick tan head.
S: It smelled like juicy plumb and sweet raisin and milk chocolate, with some pumpernickel and citrus and toffee and...every other delicious scent imaginable.
T: It tasted like rich chocolate and dark fruits and sweet caramel, with some citrus and tropical fruits and bready yeast. It had a clean and sugary sweet aftertaste with alcohol warming.
M: It was thick and chewy with a little carbonation. Huge body.
D: I love these beers every year, and this is no exception. The scent and taste were vastly complex and super delicious. The body was nearly perfect, and the finish was pretty smooth. So it was pretty easy to drink, despite some heat, but I preferred sipping it. I'm sure this would age forever, it was also great fresh. Excellent brew.

A - dark brown with a big, brown, frothy, head that has great retention

S - wood, alcohol, caramel, roasted malts, dark fruit

T - roasty, chocolate, earthy, spicy hops, woody, alcohol, dark fruit

M - full bodied, warm, smooth

This is a great beer that is very complex. There are so many different flavors that I know I didn't give them all their justice above. The ABV is definitlely noticeable but it didn't detract from the flavors or the overall drinking experience. This is yet another big beer from He'Brew that is nicely done. It's well worth a try.
