Sampled at Slutfest 4 - Sexytime! Just not doing it for me. Kinda a mess of chocolate malt and bitter hop and interesting. But just not what I was looking for. Awesome name and label though.

Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is light caramel and toffee. Flavor is rich caramel and toffee with a nice hit of hops which surprised me for an old ale. Itís a little thinner than some, but I find it quite pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Dark, ruby color, with a small, tan head. Dark chocolate, cherries, heavy cream, peat, and savory spices. Very sweet, with a very faint roasted and hoppy bitterness. The palate is heavy, sticky, and fairly dry. The finish is mildly bitter, with lots of alcohol warming. Overall, this is a strong, malty, and complex beer.

The gimp is making me gimpy. You seriously cannot detect the 10.3 percent and that is a very dangerous, but good thing. Pours a deep mahogany with a slight white ring of head. Deep swarthy malts with scads of toffee. Nice balance with a whack of dark hops in the finish.
