bomber into a tulip
pours a copper brown with a creamy beige head of about two inches.
smells of caramel and toffee. kinda of like a subdued quad. smell definitely does not overwhelm, but is pleasant nontheless.
bitter kick in the aftertaste with hints of vanilla.
this is not a style that i'm all too familiar with, but this is a very enjoyable beer. abv is well hidden.
glad i tried t. would definitely drink again but not sure i'd seek it out.

Bottle cellared for 2 years. Pours a slightly hazy, light mahogany with little to no head, with some spotty lacing as I swirled.
Aromas begin quite dark fruit forward with lots of raisins, currants, dates and a predominant dark cherry sugary sweetness. As it warms you get more of the caramel and brown sugar maltiness. A little too sweet and sugary; the alcohol becomes more prevalent as is warms as well.
The taste begins with waves of dark caramel maltiness with raisin juice quickly followed by lesser brown sugar and toffee notes. You get the fruitiness more in the flavor as it warms with dark cherry, currant and more and more rum raisins. Alcohol flavors become a tad too prevalent towards the end.
Mouthfeel is medium to thick, with adequate carbonation. Alcohol presence/bite makes this difficult to truly enjoy to its full capacity but helps to dry out the palate.
Overall this was a very good beer although it is still not a mind blower in the old ale spectrum. The flavors are a bit too alcohol heavy, preventing complete enjoyment/savoring. The flavor profile is good but lacks the true greatness of say Kuhnhenn 4D.
