Pours a dark mahogany color with light tan one-finger head that dissipates quickly leaving light lacing.
Smell is candy-like and dominated by sweet malts. Brown sugar, caramel, some dark fruits, and alcohol are also present.
This beer is very sweet with lots of residual sugars. Complex flavor is overshadowed by the sweetness in my opinion. Molasses, brown sugar, caramel, raisins, dark cherry. Once the sweetness starts to fade a light bitterness comes through. Alcohol is certainly present but as it should in this style.
Mouthfeel is syrupy and somewhere between sticky and smooth. There was a nice amount of carbonation to begin with but seemed to become completely flat by the end.
I found this overly sweet and had to make an effort to finish it for that reason.
