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.
