92 Points/Outstanding, The Allstrom Brothers, Beer Advocate
Appearance: Pours a grand beer with a massive off-white/tan head that stick and retains very well. Beer colour is deep brown/chocolate with mahogony stain edges.
Smell: Aroma = absolutely wonderful. Perfumy, floral, malty, toasty, bicuity with freshly milled grain powder aromas and loads of caramel flavours that force the anticipation of a rather sweet brew.
Taste: Silky smooth mouthfeel with a medium body. Malt flavours are very even. Caramel, earth, a bit nutty, touch of roasted, toasted and biscuit followed by a near sugary sweetness, but not too sweet. Hop flavours are perceived, but not dominant ... providing balance and thin bitterness that seems to team up with the touch of roasted malt. Hint (hint) of raisin that mingles with the hops. Finish goes a tad dry with some grain notes.
