Yes indeed. Poured a dark amber with a three finger head which diminished but a nice ring and good lacing decided to hang around. Simply beautiful.
Ah the smell was very pleasant with raisins and cherries dominating. This certainly reminded me of the fruit cakes my grandmother baked back in the day.
Began with a raisin fig combination which was a main part of the taste and finished with the alcohol warming the chest. The malts were very apparent as well which led to the sweetness(not too sweet) of the ale.
Mouthfeel was thick and creamy. Really enjoyed it.
The drinkability was smooth and due to the 9%ABV definitely a sipper. Would certainly indulge again. Oh yeah definitely gets better as it warms.
Serving type: bottle
