Bought this at Boonton Liquor Outlet in Boonton, NJ. Into a snifter, it poured a very dark brown with two fingers of tan head, which both retained and laced very well. Little visible carbonation. The nose revealed plum, blackberry, raisin, date, tart cherry, cocoa, slight coffee, and the presence of alcohol. The taste revealed black cherry, chocolate, and molasses initially, then a dry tartness midpalate, and finally a smooth brown sugar finish, with some lingering tartness afterward as well. The alcohol was much more hidden in the taste versus the smell. Deeply complex, yet oh so balanced. Thick feel, yet velvety smooth, with no carbonation, and a dry bitter tartness afterward. What a great beer; I could only imagine what this would taste like aged some more.

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.
