Thanks to msubulldog25 for sharing this one.
Very dark brown with golden amber highlights. Nice creamy head of tan foam. Quite good retention and very good lacing.
Man, that is some dark fruit overload in that glass. Huge notes of black cherries, figs, raisins, and black currants. Slight touch of raspberries and bananas. Huge sweet malty profile. Big sweet caramel presence. Good balanced level of sweetbreads. Very slight booziness, also.
Big sweet caramel presence. Slight boozy warmth. Notes of mellow spices mixed with molasses and drizzled on top of big dark fruit. Slight hint of dark chocolate covered coffee beans and tobacco, in the finish.
Nice full bodied brew. Very creamy and smooth.
Aside from the warming factor, the alcohol is fairly well-hidden in this one. As far as the flavor goes, anyway.
This is quite drinkable and I wish I had access to many more.

Poured into a teku, dark brown and murky, with no head. Smell up front is smoke, a dark fruits, raisins, figs a hint of cherry skin. Getting a lot of smoke in the taste. It's a subdued smoke, not like a rauch or anything, but it's definitely there. Was not expecting it and it overshadows some of the other flavors. No carb issue here. As it warms, some of the dark fruit, caramel, burnt sugar flavor is coming out. Super complex. This might have gone over my head. Worth a try for sure. I'll try some with some age on it, see how that compares.
