Had this on tap at the Sugarbowl in Edmonton in a chalice.
A - deep brown in color with a thick, one finger+ tan head that coast the glass in thick sheets of lacing
S - lots of dark fruits and caramel on the nose, some raisin and a hint of grassy/earthiness in the background
T - really complex with some initial hops bitterness that melts into a huge tangy, dark fruit/raisin backbone; some initial sweetness totally overtaken by the dark fruit
M - exceptionally smooth (perhaps a positive side-effect of being on tap). Literally velvety in the mouth with just the slightest hint of carbonation to offset it. Not boozy at all
D - goes down very easily; dangerous
This was a very delicious beer that can serve either as a nice sipper or can be quaffed with a vengeance! An excellent cold weather drink!
Serving type: on-tap

A: Beautiful chestnut body and head, rocky, lasting, lacing. Yes it matters!
S: Liquor like, Cointreau, is the first impression, along with lots of grass, then blend of dark malts with plenty of fruit notes: apple, plum, figs, cherry. Want more of it, still subtle as it warms.
T: Follows the smell, again with the after-dinner drink quality. In this case, savored on the ferry home. Flavorful, malty dark caramel, spice, brown sugar, cocoa, latte, and stout. Sweet, fruit liqueurs, followed by drying, slight bitterness, into a crisp, roasty finish. COMPLEX!
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus w moderate carbonation.
O: Must try. Unusual grassy and liqueur like Belgian. Recommended.
Serving type: bottle
