Absolutely gorgeous dark amber to ruby coloring. The head is bright and effervescent with loads bubbly carbonation ringing out.

Rich molasses fills the nose with sweet chocolate/caramel fullness. Dates and prune sweetness accompany a port, wine or cognac end.

Very full, rich flavor of grape, chocolatey malt, caramel, wine, cognac and prune. Hints of molasses, oak and malt hold the backbone but the alcohol rich flavors of fermented or distilled grapes overtakes. Slight warmth in the chest does not deter but defines a wonderful winter warmer/fireplace sipping ale.
