On-tap at ABR 2011. Served into a small tasting glass:
A - Pours a dark brown with amber hues. A little bit of head to start that dies to a thin foam head. Lacing is pretty good.
S - Dark roast with a touch of sweetness from the honey. Caramel and brown sugar.
T - Cherries, cranberries and other dark fruits mixed with a nice touch of honey. Those hints of brown sugar and caramel come back around to round out the taste. Quite tasty.
M - Decent amount of carbonation with that nice sugary sweetness. Really smooth and creamy.
O - Really, really nice treat. This was one of my favorite brews of the fest. Really nice, sweet and creamy and something that I could drink quite a bit of. I like this better than two, thats for sure. I'd like to get my hands on some of this if possible, but I don't see that happening. Lovely, though.

From a special keg sent from the brewery for Dennis Brother's 10th anniversary store event. Poured into a clear plastic cup.
Appearance: A very dark brownish black with a light hint of amber. About a couple fingers of off white head that fades into a thin patchy layer. Decent amount of lacing.
Smell: A pretty sweet and fruity aroma. Dark roasted malts with some hints of dark bread, chocolate, toffee, and burnt caramel. Huge presence of dark fruits with hints of raisin, dark cherry, plums, and fig. A good amount of molasses and brown sugar. Also some hints of honey, apple, and vanilla.
Taste: Like it smells, a pretty sweet taste that is very forward with the dark fruits and sugar, but not cloying. Some dark malts with fairly mild notes of chocolate, caramel, toffee, and dark biscuit. A good dose of molasses and brown sugar. Really big taste of dark and ripe fruits. Notes of raisin, cherries, plums, figs, apple, and pear. Honey is actually kind of tame compared to the fruits. A little bit of vanilla. Very good taste here.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very creamy and slick. Somewhat sticky. Alcohol is hidden very well considering how high it is.
Overall: A very good and interesting brew. My first experience with this style. With a couple years of age the dark fruits really shine. Nice to be able to try this.
