A - A deep garnet color, saw the sediment coming out of the bottle, and I could have stopped it, but I didn't because I often like the texture it gives in the mouth.
S - The smell is sultry, rich and deep. There's a bit of a dark fruit sweetness and just a taint of alcohol.
T - Syrupy malt character with an intense sweetness. The high ABV keeps it volatile on the tongue. It's a quadrupel but tastes a bit like some of the US made bourbon-barrel aged barleywines.
M - More carbonated than I'd have thought, very heavy in the mouth but the alcohol keeps it moving .The sediment is never settles out enough to change the gradation of the mouthfeel throughout the drink, it's more the warming which brings out the alcohol that changes the mouthfeel as you drink it.
D - This beer is like soufle or crème brulee, way too much for an everyday affair but if you don't have one every now and again you'll probably die. Take this beer seriously or it will end you!
