Bottle Comments:

Aroma:
caramel, toffee, dark fruit/stone fruit aroma. rich malt complexity including toasted malt aromas. slight alcohol note but is well hidden. no hop aroma.
8 / 12

Appearance:
deep chestnut brown colour when held up to the light. thin white head that does not persist, due to alcohol content
2 / 3

Flavor:
rich malt flavour including highly kilned caramel malts giving fig and plum like flavours. very light almost imperceptible roast malt character. no to low hop flavour. flavours are complex and meld together nicely.
15 / 20

Mouthfeel:
medium body, smooth. low carbonation, mid to high warmth from the alcohol although no sharp or harsh alcohols are noted. little to no astringency although the alcohol is perceived at the finish, giving a perception of dryness.
4 / 5

Overall:
a rich, complex beer that hides the alcohol content very well. quite sessionable for the ABV. if any improvements, would suggest improving head retention and body, both of which could be done by adding wheat malt or dextrin malt. i would drink a pint of this no problem.
