Sampled back on 10/13/13. Chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.
Pours a very dark brown in color with a small tan head. Lots of lacing is seen with each sip. The aroma is of sweet maple syrup and grassy hops. Actually brewed with maple syrup. Nice aroma. The taste was actually very smooth with that high alcohol content unlike other 9% brews. Smooth rich flavor that was pretty tasty with no harsh aftertaste.

The colour is dark brown with a tint of red (70 EBC). The low brown head disappears quickly. No lacing.
The smell is malty with a smooth sweetness. Some dried red berries, chocolate and molasses. Raisins, bitter-tart notes and quite a lot of alcohol.
The taste is nutty with lots of dried red fruits and caramel. Distinct warming alcohol. Treacle and a touch of perfume. Medium to full body. The aftertaste is smooth with some bitterness in the background. Figs, raisins and prunes. Alcohol and dried fruits in the finish.
The carbonation is mild, the few fresh bubbles are large. The liquid is thick and a bit sticky.
Lots of flavours, lots of alcohol. But not as sweet as expected. An OK after dinner ale.
