Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass, much thanks Ed, at Churchkey DC.

A real nice wonderful chestnut body, with a creamy tan head. Some see through character but still quite dark off the pour with barely any lacing at all. Real nice color.

Nose is big large, but in control. Expressive notes of dark fruit plum and raisin at first. Woody like tannic heat and very soft mild brett. Round oak character, with everything balanced. Extremely impressive.

Taste is a big kapow of flavor. First is a large mix of licorice, not so much fennel as the thickness brings out more power, then melding to large sticky butterscotch toffee. Rolling salty caramel in the mid palate with a large sweetness, and the finish goes down velvety with tropical mush notes of fruit of real varied character.

This is a very impressive beer, for a style I usually don't care for, with taste profiles that aren't always are my favorite. But this is some seriously well crafted beer here.
