Isid'or pours a welcoming shade of golden brown, with a fizzy froth of vintage white sitting on top. The brew is somewhat murky, and more than adequately carbonated. From the nose, I am picking up lots of fruit esters, primarily plum... apple cinnamon, some phenols, and a bready malt character. The initial wave of flavor reveals a big molasses taste, with fig, moving onward to a very spicy, alcohol-laden ending, and a fair amount of sharp hops. The finish is smooth however, leaving a very wholesome grainy flavor on your tastebuds. Overall, very good, but could use some improvement in the balance department.

Pulling the cork releases a big burst of oak with stone fruit. This is a young bottle - older bottles have more sherry notes on the nose and palate.
It pours a hazy peach under a 3" under a bone white foam cap that is persistent and lacy.
The young bottle has apricot to peach fruit flavors joined with a dash of pineapple while in older versions it turns more to prune and sherry. Light biscuit lightly flavored by caramel shows up in the middle and it dries slightly by the finish with a suspicion of cider.
The body is medium for such a big beer and the very fine soft carbonation gives it an extraordinary creaminess.
