This strong ale pours a dark brown color with a slight amber tint.  Good off-white head that has decent retention.  Good lacing.

Smell consists of malt, dark fruit, caramel, hops, cherry, raisin, sugar, some floral.

Taste consists of malt, cherry, dark fruit, caramel, hops, sugar, some alcohol, some floral.

Mouthfeel is earthy and textured on the palate.  Bitter throughout with some dryness.

Overall, flavorful strong ale with a decent malty profile of flavors and solid bitterness.  Dark fruit flavors are fairly prevalent and come together well with maltiness.  Some hops and caramel also come through.  An interesting beer that is available at a nice price. 

My score: 90
