This beer pours a deep reddish brown with a tan head that leaves some good lacing on my glass.
The aroma is of sweet maris otter-like malt with hints of molasses and raisins and there is also a hop presence that gives it a tiny amount of citrus trying to come through. It isn't an up front citrus but it is faintly there.
The flavor is of raisins, sweet malt, followed by a hop cleansing that gives you a hint of citrus again. The small citrus presence is quickly killed by the malt sweetness and the alcohol warming in the finish. This is a great tasting beer. I wanted to age this out for a while but I only had the one bottle. This is a perfect beer for aging.
The mouthfeel is full bodied with medium/moderate carbonation.
Though this is a strong beer I would say its drinkability is fairly high. At least for people with the taste for big beers.
