Poured a beautiful reddish-brown, with a finger of gorgeous off-white head. Spectacular. Scents of dark fruit, raisin, some dried apple and slight alcohol when cold. Fruity scents and brown sugar take over the aroma as the beer warms. The apple is also still present. There is also some slight spice aromas, almost cinnamon-like. An excellent, complex nose that evolves as the beer warms. Flavors of raisin, brown sugar, dark fruit, apples, chocolate, and slight alcohol when cold. As the beer warms the alcohol becomes more pronounced on the finish and the other flavors also become more intense. The fruity flavors in particular become stronger and more assertive. A slight red wine character also begins to emerge. A sublime, complex flavor profile. Fantastic. Mouthfeel is heavy bodied with a slight alcohol burn. Quite good, nice to sip. This is an excellent beer, deep, complex and rich. Well worth drinking, well worth savoring. It is simply sublime.

Pours an opaque deep brown with caramel highlights and more beige, dense, creamy head than body. Thick sheets of lacing line the glass walls. The head lingers and is so dense, it climbs above the rim.
Prunes, raisins, figs, bruised apple and burnt sugar form the initial aroma. Gives the impression of a rum-soaked fruitcake. Notes of cola add complexity.
Flavor is intensely sweet and bready, with prunes, pear, banana, and raisins underlying. Toasted, caramelly malt forms the backbone, but the dark fruit character dominates. The finish is slightly dry and boozy.
Body is on the full side, with low carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.
Very complex, estery character, with enough alcohol to warm the belly, but not detract from the experience. Truly a beauty of a beer.
