Pours dark brown with ruby highlights. Small light tan head that fades quickly but leaves a nice lacing around the glass. Slightly sparkly.
The aroma begins with rich dark fruit. Sweet rum cake, brown sugar, molasses, dates, spicy yeast, rounded off with warming alcohol. As it warms the alcohol makes a bigger appearance.
The taste is very sweet up front. Raisins, dates, brown sugar. Finishes with a slightly roasted character and more raisins as well as warming alcohol. Lots of fruits going on along with cinnamon and clove.
The mouthfeel is nice and full. A decent amount of carbonation, not heavy nor fizzy. Coats the mouth.
Overall an excellent beer. I've had several vintages aged at various lengths. My favorite has been 2006, but aged for four years, the 2007 is also quite delectable.
