A pretty dark brown body and a couple fingers of head. Decent head retention, almost no lacing.
Smells of ripe fruit, caramel, and just sugary.
The first thing I taste is a sugary/molasses flavor followed by huge caramel maltiness. Really caramel flavored. Finishes with a little alcohol warming. Too much caramel in my opinion.
Pretty good mouthfeel, balanced carbonation. A little syrupy.
I could not drink too many of this beer. Probably only one actually. It is far too sugary and the caramel is overpowering. Considering caramel is not my favorite flavor, this is understandable. Others might feel differently.
Serving type: on-tap

Deep garnett in color with good clarity. Poured with a short, dense, off-white foam that quickly dissipated. Sweet malt, brown sugar, raisin and fig aromas with boozy notes in the background. Full bodied with tangy, assertive carbonation through the middle and a semi-dry finish. Sweet bready malt, dark fruit, fig and raisin flavors up front. Tangy, lightly spicy hop bitterness through the middle. Definitive booziness toward the end as well. Finished with a semi-dry feel and lingering bready malt and herbal hop bitterness. This was excellent and, to me, drank a lot like an ale version of a doppelbock.

I wish this wast not a seasonal beer! I really like this beer! I think it is barrel age
or bootle conditioned, it is very smooth. I am really picky about beer. I live in Europe and
enjoy dark beer. I have to wait til next year to buy some more. classic winter beer.
