Another one I've been waiting for for a while and just this week picked it up at specs!

Poured into my Jester King grand opening snifter, great color, it's a clear dark red with a thin almost tan head, poor retention on the head.

Dark fruit was the first thing I got, like plums and raisins then some floral notes from the hops and an intense sweetness as well as a more pronounced hoppy aroma.

Kinda sweet up front and as soon as I'm able to notice the sweetness I get a burst of hop bitterness that I was not expecting from the aroma, the bitterness lasts into the finish and is met by some of the dark fruit flavors I was expecting. The flavors all blend quite nicely together.

Stupidly smooth, medium in body, carbonation is nice. Words don't seem to be able to adequately express the smoothness of the beer. It's a joy to drink.

Overall, easily one of the top beers I've every had, smooth, extremely flavorful. Wish I could get it every day, bottle number 2 wowed me every bit as much as bottle number 1
