3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ brewery. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is dry pepper and spice with light banana clove and denser sweet malt with fig and plum. Taste follows the aroma is pepper, spice, clove, and heavier sweet malt notes including raisin. Drinks very clean for such a high ABV beer. I enjoyed this beer a lot.

draft at brewery, ah the widow i liked. Strong nutty and dry. Great malts, caramel, nuts, and malt flavors, sounds like a candy bar but not cloying at all. Dry finish makes this a winner.

Growler... Clear, deep, dark mahogany pour with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. In the aroma, I’m picking up malty and vinous notes of dark fruits, fortified wine and burnt caramel. Medium to full-bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor is malty, roasty, minerally and mildly bitter. Roasty, mineral finish. The relatively high ABV is not apparent here. Growler courtesy of richiesd!
