Very good ale. Heavy on the alcoholic content, but also very heavy in flavor. I enjoyed the overwhelming flavor of malt.

Dark reddish brown, very little foam that quickly dissipated to a thin film. Little to no lacing. Aroma is sweet, lots of vanilla, caramel and a bit of a medicinal smell also. Taste was fairly sweet and a little smoky. Got some dark fruits, bubble gum, caramel and vanilla notes as well. Mouthfeel was thinner than I expected, with a little bite from the 9.2%. Overall this was a pretty tasty brew, fairly complex and nicely done.
