Received from a coworker. Opened slightly warm so it was all foam! Aroma is of spice, some caramel and mocha. Flavour follows aroma and is quite nice. Palate isnt too dry, and finishes perfect, not to sweet or oily. Overall a great beer.

From the bottle...strong aroma of roasted malt and alcohol and bread and it definitely has a sweetness to it. Alcohol is a bit too present for 8.5% to me but still a very good brew.

Pours like a brown ale, great sweet malt notes. Hints of cherry. Balanced alcohol. Ever so slight hard spice note. Slight hops really round it out. Great wintertime beer.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2013 Appearance is a wonderful caramel color with thick off-white head. Aroma is unusual - Loads of herbs, red sweets, some metal and some roasted malt. Complex round, citric and juicy mouth feel with low carbonation. Aftertaste is Citric, herbal, floral hops, some metal and some alcohol. Overall: Fantastic! So unique and complex!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark Brown beer with light brown head. Roasty aromas and a light metallic off flavor. In mouth it is where it really shines. Great bitterness and a slightly acidity compensated with some sweetness. Good body and correct carbonation. Retronasal aromas are simply fantastic: coffee and dark fruits. Bitter ending.
Really nice beer. A pity the slightly metallic off flavor.
