Cloudy dark brown and thin tan head with good retention and spotty lacing. Figs and sugary yeast and touches of floral. Malty alcohol tempered with raisin and fig with strong clear flavor with caramel sweetness. Chocolate and cherry flavors make an appearance after awhile. Slightly fuzzy and silky mouthfeel.
What is there to say but this is an exceptional beer. Aroma isn't what I would consider complex but it is so good it only whet's your appetite for what's to come. It is very sweet (I like that), like a liquid candy bar (in a good way) but it's somehow balanced or tempered by the yeast and alcohol. The alcohol accentuates the taste rather than just creating a pleasant warming or boozy quality. It certainly has similarities to malt liquor but it seems every sip brings something new. My only complaint is the bottle isn't big enough!
