Poured into a tulip glass.
A: Hazy and dark brown, with perhaps a slight garnet tint and a modest tan head.
S: Strong scents of raisin and caramel, as well as plums and brown sugar. Very sweet-smelling, but not too much so. Quite nice.
T: An interesting melding of dark crystal malts, brown sugar and raisin flavors. Very reminiscent of, say, a Chimay blue. Very nice, especially with a pleasant alcoholic warming on the way down.
M: Full-bodied, but not too heavy. Decent carbonation, but never prickly. Fairly sweet aftertaste.
D: A sipper. Take it slow and savor all those lovely flavors.
I must say that this is perhaps the first beer that I noticed flavors hitting me in a particular sequence, which I though was pretty cool. A very nice strong ale that deserves time and contemplation. I could see myself drinking this over a particularly sharp and tactical chess game.

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.
