Pours like oil after being used for 3000 miles. Great, thick brown head of three fingers, with lace the clings like glue. Color...well black... a 40 on the SRM beer color chart. Smell is rich and sweet, with aromas of dark roasted coffee, roasted wheat and corn, molasses, toffee, and cranberries. Taste is very complex and wonderful. There are flavors of coffee, chocolate, toffee, molasses, cranberries, licorice, prune, and a slight dash of citrus. Mouthfeel is thick like heavy cream, slightly drying feel in the back of my upper palate. This beer sneaks up on you like a tiger, and the alcohol kicks your butt. From the first good swig, you feel the warming and it is a downhill rush after that. One at a sitting is surely enough, but the flavor is saying give me more.
