3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Translucent amber color, little head, thick, and no aroma. Flavor is a huge thick malty prune-like flavor, very wintery, chewy, and slightly smoky. This is a lot bigger than i expected, and seems to actually make me more thirsty than i was before drinking it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a lightly hazy orangish copper with a tall creamy light tan head. There were some carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. The aroma was a bready caramel with some dark stone fruit and a hint of orange. The beer had a thicker texture and a good flavor of caramel/toffee along with a nice alcohol warmth. There was a good bit of sweetness to balance the alcohol. There was a little bitterness on the finish, but it mellowed out fairly quickly with a good alcohol warmth lingering. Very nice.
