The nose of the 750 ml bottle suggests moist dense spice cake with dark dried fruit and a hint of anise.
It pours a hazy dark tea amber under a 3" rocky off-white foam cap that slowly dissipates into clingy clumps of finely bubbled foam. The beer lines the glass with lace and upon swirling shows a hint of legs.
The juicy liquid fruitcake palate includes dark fruit sugar, dried figs, faint banana, and a trace of biscuit suspended in a very creamy, moussey beer.
The beer is surprisingly light on its feet for such a big, flavorful, complex high alcohol brew. The alcohol is deceptive and tastes less than 10% abv although it is slightly warming.
The tap version has a little less carbonation and it is a little less soft shifting some of the flavors from dark dried fruits to plums.
