This beer pours a deep reddish garnet, similar to a barley wine in color, maybe a tad darker. The head was very slight and faded quickly, leaving a thin ring. The smell is tropically sweet malt with the cane sugar in, in addition to, a kind of bittersweet hop edge and ripe fruit, with both citrus and plums.
Glug glug glug
Mmmm, first are the dark fruits and the rich sweet malt, which underlies all the other flavors very nicely. The hops and citrus come in second with a bitter edge that mixes well with the sweetness. Towards the end of the profile is a second helping of a sugar cookie like malt with the heat from the alcohol only a little masked. This being said, the booze character brings no heat, just warmth. Mouth feel is think and delicious. A great beer that's opened my eyes to the strong ale.
