11.2oz bottle poured into tulip glass. - Editing based on updated notes.

A: Dark, mud brown color with the faintest hints of ruby red when held to the light. A two-finger rocky beige head eventually fades, leaving sticky lace down the glass. 1/4 inch head retains until the end. There's a whole lot of crazy, muddy looking sediment that rests in the bottom on the glass, occasionally rising slowly with the carbonation and sinking back down. For some reason, that really excited me and I found myself raising this one to the light to appreciate it between sips.

S: Dark (but not overly bitter) chocolate, with hints of caramelized brown sugar. Anise and alcohol are faint, but present. Didn't pick up anything different the most recent time around. The caramelized candy sugar scent did seem a bit more upfront this time.

T: Holy cow, this one is rich! A thick, sweet malt flavor that blends flawlessly with the spicy, peppery alcohol. Bits of caramelized brown sugar and an array of dark fruits (raisins and figs are what came to mind first) underneath. Twangs of alcohol and brown sugar (or possibly just a mild molasses) come back for a last hurrah as it warms your throat on the way down. *Note: The beer was a little too cold initially when I took it out of the fridge, which caused me to miss a lot of the flavors on the first sip or two. Do yourself a favor and make damn sure you drink this at its recommended temperature. It's unbelievable how much complexity in the flavors shone through after I let this one sit a minute or two.

M: A mild, tight carbonation mixed with the full-body and creamy head make this drink more like a dessert than a beer! This beer is unrivaled in terms of smoothness, creaminess, and overall drinkability considering its alcohol content. There's a strong kick from the booze in the first sip, but it eventually fades away, leaving you with nothing but rich, creamy goodness.

O: This brew is held in high regard for a reason. A lot of skill and craft went into brewing this one and it absolutely shows--from the first sip until the last. If you have a chance to pick this one up, I highly recommend you do so. Pour it, sip it, savor it, respect it, love it.
