Poured into my much-loved Duck-Rabbit snifter

A - Dark, brown-red with a thick, creamy tan head that quickly dissipates, leaving a slight haze on the surface.

S - Dark dried fruits (raisins and figs), medium-heavy roasted malts and a little bit of brown sugar.

T - More raisin and fig. Black cherry notes get stronger and stronger as this one warms up. Roasted malt and a little bit of cocoa powder. Bit of alcohol floating around.

M - Medium-heavy body with surprisingly high carbonation that really makes this a dangerous beer. Dry finish.

D - Amazing and complex brew, could sip on this all night! I do, however, prefer the 10 to this, the 10 being more of a dessert in a bottle. Still, this is a delicious beer and one of the benchmarks of the style.
