Poured into a small chalice: color is dark brown to black, head presents 1/4 inch thick and is light tan in color, mainly fine bubbles. No lacing.

Smell is mainly malt dominant, not quite deep in noted dark malt potential flavors but some light fruit/raisin/toffee.

Taste is similar to the aroma with big malt presence and sweetness; flavor has more depth than the aroma and the hop bitterness seems appropriate for the style. Malt like flavors include fruit/raisin/toffee; hops are light but earthy, maybe some grassiness. The flavor seems fresh and might need some aging to fully develop some more interesting malt based flavors. Absolutely no hint at the 9.0% ABV strength.

Mouthfeel is a little cloying and full, and a little gritty like (maybe just dry).

Overall a nice beer from Genesse, big malty flavor, lighter off flavors typical of strong ale/malt heavy beer - this is not a spiced winter warmer, but a malty deep warmer. ABV is hidden well with the fairly sweet malt flavor. I'll buy this again to age some to see if those deeper flavors develop.
