Poured into a tulip. Pours a deep ruby color with a very thick light brown heading that just wants to overflow. Leaves very nice soapy lacing until about halfway through than turns completley flat.

Smell is high in roasted malt with a nice sweet aroma too. A spicier hop profile is also present seems to balance it out nicely.

Taste doesn't disappoint.Slight warmness of alcohol at first then the roasted maltiness takes over. The spiciness of the hops takes over towards the backend and leave a nice linger.

Mouthfeel foams up something fierce with a nice medium to fuller body. A very lingering of hoppiness on the palate.

Drink is good. Although it is 8% ABV it's very sessionable and drinkable.
