Poured into a Riedel tulip. The liquid is a dark mahogany that turns to a clear amber when held to light. The pour kicks up a solid head of tiny bubbles that fades to a fluffy cap after a few minutes, and just a ring around the glass after a few more minutes. Leaves minimal lace.

Aroma is plums, figs, other dark fruit, vanilla, caramel, toffee, and hints of licorice. Could probably pass for a quad if it wanted to.

Taste follows the nose - lots of dark fruit. There is a nice oak character that gives it some of the nice flavors of barrel-aging, but doesn't overwhelm. Nice touches of vanilla and caramel. Finish is slightly bitter and drying, and aftertaste is dark fruit again.

Mouthfeel is moderately thick, with a nice presence from the carbonation.

Overall, really nice cold-weather flavors in a relatively low ABV. Perfect for fall. Great base beer, and the oak makes it better.

From a bottle, this fine ale pours a nice light amber with a quickly dissipating white foam and
light lacing. Nose of vanilla, caramel, and heavy oak. Flavors are sweet up front, a light
caramel flavor, oak to the back and sides with a light bittering hops on the aftertaste. Smooth
mouthfeel, with a lot of smooth oak and a hint of vanilla in there. Nice.
