This one is a brown color that shows some red when the light shines through its body. It doesn't form much of a head, but does hold up a layer of lightly tanned foam that leaves some thin bubbling behind.
Lots of sweetness comes off the nose, and it's a big malt bomb. There's just a ton of dark fruits (raisin, plum, fig) and brown sugar leading to some rich blackstrap. That's not to say there isn't any hops presence, as some dryer leaf balances it well. The aroma is this beer's best aspect.
The main problem with the flavor in this otherwise excellent beer is that it can't avoid cloying. It's just too sweet and rich without much to cut it, though hops do try. It even gives off something like sugary bubble gum in the middle and ends with some thick fruitcake.
The body alternates confusingly but very interestingly between thick, rich and viscous and thinner, alcohol running in and out on the tongue so it's hard to keep track of. It adds a bit of sting as well, though not harshly. I remains semi-sweet and doesn't run too sweet because of the hoppier elements, mostly, keeping some dryness in it.
