Finally found a bottle of this and man, am I glad I did. Restored my faith in great beers after a string of mildly disappointing big beers I've had.
Dark brown color with red undertones. Really nice, tan-colored head. Fantastic retention on this, especially for a high gravity beer. Nice lacing along the sides of my chalice.
Aroma is very fruity with apples, caramel and spices apparent. Wonderful and complex.
Taste is amazing! A smooth, rich flavor that blends perfectly from initial sweet, almost tangy fruitiness to rich malt and toffee flavors and then to a great finish that has hints of earthy hops.
Nice, rich mouthfeel. Carbonation was pleasant and the finish was nice and slightly dry.
Very drinkable, as I found myself wishing I had more at the end. The 11.3% ABV was very well hidden (I would have guessed 8%), though I could feel it at the end. The best beer I've had in a long time, and certainly in the top 5 or so all-time.
