Love this beer - surprised I didn't find it here in my past reviews.
Chilled it a bit - slow start as the head retention is a tad disappointing as the dark ruby color settles in my snifter.
Rich, malty nose. Stewed plums - a compote atoma. Picking up some points here.
Sweetness on the palate, low carbonation in this bottle, but perhaps ok all things considered as this brew packs quite the ABV punch.
Interesting as I disect this beer piece by piece, wouldn't say I'm wowed by the isolated elements. Still, this is one brew for which when all the pieces are put together, the total package offers much to enjoy.
