A-Black in the glass, some carbonation, one finger off white head.

S-Good deal of dark fruits, some smoke and some roasted malt.

T-Lots of dark fruits, along with smoke, roasted malt, slight chocolate and no bitterness.

M-Lighter, not much carbonation and almost watery.

O-The booze was hidden well and the smoke and dark fruits was an interesting combination, they just didn't fully go together.

Reviewed last night with full notes taken to my phone. Thanks to my cousin Sonny for sending this my way.

A- Black bodied pour to several glasses at a tasting. Light tan head builds up to about a finger with a foamy texture. Lacing consists of sheets and webs.

S- Nutty and roasty. Tons of toasted nuts along with a hefty roast malt base and some smoke. Raisins and cherry as well.

T- Spicy and strong with a bit of a strong BSDA feel. Spiced raisins, toasted nuts and dried red fruits are huge with a spiced fruit cake feel. Cocoa powder, dark candi sugar, earthy hops, medicinal fruit, brown sugar and some alcohol.

MF- Medium bodied with a fairly high carbonation and a silky, foamy texture. Sort of on the thin side for the flavors. Finishes quite warm.

Extremely nutty and dark fruit laiden with quite a bit kf roast and alcohol coming into play. The body could use some thickness but fairly solid all around.
