Overall Impression
An intensely-flavored, big, dark ale with a wide range of flavor balances and regional interpretations.

Roasty-burnt malt with deep dark or dried fruit flavors, and a warming, bittersweet finish.

Despite the intense flavors, the components need to meld together to create a complex, harmonious beer,

not a hot mess.
