This review taken from notes written about two weeks ago, as I recently moved and did not have internet access, but didn't let that stop me from reviewing.
I intended on a nice leisurely pour into a snifter with this one, and ended up up-ending it just for a half finger of sandy colored head. This dissipated in a minute to leave nothing on top of the beer but a thick ring. Body was a nice orange-brown color.
The aroma on this is all malt. Caramel malt is strong and a hint of bready malt is detected after some searching. Raisins and figs are also a nice strong aroma here, and I detected a whiff or two of alcohol on the end.
The taste was to the nose, with the addition of a nice bitterness on the end that just drew me in and made me want more. Sweeter than expected.
I found this beer nice and thick. Full bodied, with carbonation that was just enough to ease it over your tongue. Although I caught a bit of alcohol in the nose, it was not apparent anywhere else in the beer.
