Pours with a huge dark head. Nice mixed aroma initially of a sweet alcohol and fruit (plum, prune quality) with a little berry thrown in. How nice it that? Almost a smoky quality to the grain. The alcohol fades in time leaving only the malty fruit.
A very cloudy dark amber of browns and deeper red. Head settles slowly.
Flavor is less bright and bold than the aroma. Malt character holds more grainy quality, but still holds the prune like fruit flavor. Alcohol noticeable, but not overpowering. Hops balance the sweetness and offer little bitterness.
Such a fine carbonation that adds softness without interfering with a nice smoothness of a rather lightly bodied brew.
Boy does this go down easily. The aroma never stops. Tasty.

This pours very dark, with a substantial tan head.

Strong aromas of dark fruits, brown sugar, and malt.

Strong flavors of dark malt, prunes, raisins, and hoppy bitterness. A little ginger too. Good balance of sweet with dry hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is full but light, with moderate carbonation.

This is one of the world's great beers. The taste is marvelous and at 7% ABV, one can afford a few.
