The beer pours a dark ruby and dark brown. There is a half inch of tan foam. The aroma is malty, dark roasted, rich caramel, toffee, with some dark fruit. The taste follows the aromas, dark roasted, rich, caramel malt, with some dark fruit tones. The beer drinks very smooth with light carbonation, nice body. The finish is dry and moderately bitter. This is really nice.
Liked it back in 2012 too: This 8.5% ABV beer pours medium brown with ruby and garnet. There is a short head of light brown foam. The aroma is malty and peaty, a touch of smoke, a touch of sweet, it is like smelling an emptied glass that had held single malt scotch. The taste is deeply, richly, insanely malty, a bit sweet, but enough bitterness on the finish to balance out. A deep, rich malt bomb.
