2.73/5  rDev -22.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours reddish amber with a giant eggshell head with great retention. Fruity, berry notes, chocolate malts and boozey astringency in the nose. Harsh rum heat detracts from the chewy, caramelly malt flavors in the taste. Some light grassy hoppiness in the back. Sparse carbonation in the medium mouthfeel. Boozy finish with low bitterness.

Too much alcohol presence for the ABV. Very distracting.

I tried this beer at the Toronto Festival of beer over the weekend. What a find. This beer has beautiful malts well balanced and smooth. This is a mouthy beer, enveloping all the senses. Beginning with a velvety rye bread, a little toasty, bitter sweets fruity notes, then a creamy caramel bourbon finish. By far the best beer experience I had all day. I would highly recommend this beer

A strong Ale, which can be paired perfectly with anything

Pours a nice amber/copper color with about two fingers of head. Head breaks quickly leaving an island of foam. Minimal lacing.

Smell is strong caramel malts. Some breadyness there too.

Taste brings the malt to the front, with a nice caramel presence. Light hops come in on the finish.

Feel is medium bodied, with lower than expected carbonation. I don't get any of the booze some others complained about.

A decent enough, if unremarkable beer. I would take it over some, but there are many more I would prefer.

A middle of the road brew. Didn't strike me as being too emphatically boozy despite coming in at 6.6. Sweet like a typical amber, hoppier than most. But, in the end, a pretty quiet experience. Drinkable, unremarkable.
