The aroma is sweet and rich with lots of caramel and resin hops. The appearance is amber brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall this is good.

Bottle; poured a very dark auburn. Not much head. Aroma was thick and sweet; syrup, caramel, dark fruit, touch of smoke and cookies. Flavor was more smoky; malty and dark fruit. A bit of hops and meat in finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, dark brown with no head to speak of. Fruity, boozy aroma. Flavor is quite sweet, with some fruit (raisin, plum), some caramel and toffee, a pronounced boozy-alcohol taste (not unlike a port or strong after dinner wine). A bit thin, perhaps, in the mouthfeel. Really not my favorite style of beer, but this wasn’t too bad all in all.

Rating from notes, unknown date but likely 2012. Very dark brown. Aroma of malt, sweet rather than dry grain. Interesting flavor of roasted marshmellow.
