A - poured a one finger thick tan head into a snifter that left good lacing and sheeting throughout. The body was a dark, ruddy brown.
S - cinnamon, chocolate, toffee, booze, raisins.
T - same as above with the booze and raisins dominating.
M - creamy and slick.
O - nice and complex, very drinkable.

10.2 ABV is noticeable at first, but quickly fades to the strong bitter finish.

Sweet caramel malt aroma, lots of melanoidins, flavor is similar, with raisins and dates, and the finish is excessively bitter. Good malt depth, but not quite to barleywine level.
