I wish I had a bigger bottle. Poured with a little yeast sediment which some was suspended in the frothy three finger head of light brown. Lace is sticky and clings from the top of the pour to the last of the glass. Color is a deep brown, a 35 on the SRM beer color chart. Smell is exquisite, with aromas of figs and dates, molasses, banana, spices, and malt. Taste is almost a good as the smell, with the sweetness of dates, molasses, honey, caramel, toffee, coffee, banana, and malt. Mouthfeel is full and creamy, with a punch from the carbonation, and a little mealy from the floating yeast. Plenty of punch from the alcohol hidden in the wonderful sweet flavor, a nice warming feeling from the first sip and flows over you like a large wave. Slightly pricey for every day drinking, but a great treat.
