33cl bottle into tulip glass.
A: Dark caramel with explosive head, 3 fingers worth and took 3 careful pours. Lingered for a while at one finger until it settled to a wispy covering leaving sticky lace behind on the glass.
S: Wine like with tannen like and strong fruits of prune plumb apricot at least. Lingered until he end.
T: Strong and rich, wine like with the aforementioned fruits plus some caramel. The alcohol comes through late. No bitterness standing out.
M: Ultra malty, heavy and rich. Carbonation explodes again if you can wait a couple seconds. You have to swallow before it runs out of gas.
O: Perhaps the perfect beer, it has everything and lots of it except bitterness but who cares? A sipping beer with a meal and it will still knock you over. I'll spring for another one of these days, nothing else comes close.

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.
