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.
