3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a cloudy dark amber color with a thick beige head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma is very nutty with a hint of fruit. Mouthfeel is a little too fizzy for what I like my strong ales to be. Flavor is ok. Mainly roasted malts, and more bitter than Iíd expected. This was decent, but nothing Iíd go out of my way to get.

Pours a near black ruby red with a foamy head. Aroma of plum cherries and alcohol. Taste is dark and malty up front with a smokey bitterness in the finish notes of dark fruit come through. The mouthfeel reveals alcohol and a higher level of carbonation.

Draft at the brewpub. Dark reddish black color. First description: Wow. Full of licorice and brown sugar, with an almost corn syrupy backdrop. But itís thick like oil almost and definitely strong. (#5821, 10/10/2014)
