a: its a dark ruby red color with some dark purple & light brown notes in there. very clear. 1.5 finger frothy, fizzy off-white head that fades really quickly and hangs around just at the surface of the beer and around the sides of the glass. i think the fact that this glass is etched has helped this stay around as well
s: loads of sweet caramel & toffee, figs, raisins, plums, brown sugar & some alcohol
t: spicy belgian yeast - pepper, coriander, some clove. a big alcohol presence in the flavor which is pretty off-putting. sweet malts, raisins & sweet plums. a hint of sticky toffee. there is like a dried cranberry flavor in here which is nice. the longer this beer is sitting out the more mellow its becoming and the dark sweet fruit is becoming juicy and tasting easier. i'm also picking up on a nice bready flavor the longer im drinking this as well, as well as something like a graham cracker.
m: medium mouthfeel, that leaves a sticky finish (ha). it also finishes really dry & with medium carbonation
o: well, i'm re-editing my review. the longer i drank this the more it opened up. nice mix of dark fruits, spice, sweet malt, and bready yeast. still a bit too much alcohol, but its an ok malt-driven brew

Picked this up at a local wine and beer store here in SoCal on a whim. Was not disappointed at all. Was not overpowering but still had a great flavor. Stands up to its description. I tasted some dried fruits along with a little bit of banana bread and I'm a sucker for banana bread. This is definitely something I would pick up again.
