Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer pours a very dark, brown-to-black coloring with hazelnut highlights under light and a dense, creamy, foamy, light tan head that starts around an inch and a half and slowly settles into a solid, enduring half inch. Aromas of charred wood, earth, darkly rich fig and date, booze, black cherries, hints of molasses, and a bready backbone to support all of this. This is a layered, deep brew from the smell of things. Flavors are incredibly smooth, with a dark fruit blend of date, fig, black cherries, and currants on the forward tongue. More richly sweet characteristics like molasses and brown sugar open up the more you drink and the more the beer warms and agitates. Wow, this is smooth and tasty. Surprisingly easy to drink despite the richness and whopping ABV. There is carbonation action going on throughout the body as you drink, and as smooth as this beer is, I can only imagine without the carbonation it would be deathly heavy. Very well crafted beer. The aftertaste is wine-like with all of the old world fruit characteristics lingering about, giving off an almost port quality. Continues with the rich and smooth feel and taste into a slow lingering, clean, slightly rich and dry finish. This is a whopper, and amazingly drinkable, which spells trouble. Wow!
