A - First thing to notice is the head, which is nothing short of mesmerizing. Light beige and thick like a meringue, it holds firm atop the murky burgundy brown body and doesn't seem to dissipate.
S - Sweet caramel and dark fruits predominate. There is a certain earthy/meaty/smoky aroma that I can't quite identify that smells appealing.
T - Raisins, dates, black mission figs, and other dark dried fruits are very forward. Note highly sweet in that sense, but more rich with a bit of fermentation tartness. Licorice/anise seed flavors are very mild but present on the finish.
M - Carbonation complements the body very well, i.e. light bubbles for higher viscosity. Very smooth and easy to enjoy another sip
O - Finally, I'm pleased to be able to try a tried and true, truly, world class beer which left no disappointment.
