ale with good medium fruity sweet sugary notes and definitely oaky notes. hints of cinnamon and nutmeg spice. hint of an apple or some lighter fruit. pretty complex and drinkable, not overly sweet. well balanced and just really nice, well rounded beer, not much hop presence

A: deep caramel to light mahogany in color, the head dissapeared as fast as i served the beer, shows little carbonation. No visible yeast or particles.

S: sweet and rich in dark notes like plums, molasses, raisins and dark candy sugar.

T: profoundly sweet, this beer is wildly big on dark notes. Plenty of plum and raisin like flavors. No alcohol or wood notes present at the moment.

M: as thick as can be, slightly chewy, flavors don't linger around for much, which might get you drinking it faster than you should.

O: a very true representation of the style and one mighty balance if i may add. This is an old ale definitely worth looking for and for saving some.
