Yum, yum, yum... pours black with the barest hint of light coming through at the very edges of the glass, with a light brown head that settles to an eternal cap.

Powerful aroma up front of alcohol and dark fruit, toffee and honey; in the mouth, this is complemented by a velvety, rich mouthfeel. There are more bitter and mineral notes in the flavor, and the roasted grains show themselves as well; in the background are some lingering dark chocolate, vanilla and spice.

This is just outstanding. Wonderful special occasion beer, I'd say. Don't pass it up.
