4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours reddish-brown with a thick, foamy, tan head that dissipates to a film within a minute or two. Looks brown in the glass, but held up to the light it’s red, like a ruby. Beautiful beer!
Nose is a divine smorgasbord of sensations: dried fruits, honey, some nice booze notes. Predominately sweet on the tongue with a nice bitter touch on the back of the palate. Caramel notes come through while sipping. Fairly full-bodied brew with a creamy texture, soft carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Delicious!

Expected more from this. Dark red / brown colour, cloudy pour, slight white head. Aroma is very sweet, hops, malt, booze and caramel. Rather thick bodied, kind of reminiscent of old engine oil.
