brown 330ml bottle poured into duvel tulip glass.
A - a definite dark brown with ruby hues, and wholly opaque. the head is thin and quickly dissipating.
S - there is a nice twang that I dont know how to describe. the malts are the most noticeable thing to the beer they have a sweet alcohol twang to them, like fermented figs.
T - there is a malty frutiness, that is made notable from a roasted or earthen character to the taste. there are many flavours playing here, but they are of the same family I feel. there are fruit flavours like raising, fig, plum; the alcohol is sweet, this ties in with the fruit , and does not make it particularly outstanding. the earthen must that comes during the finish is most exceptional and is worthy of high praise. but the sweetness of the fruits in the beer also come to blend to a certain extent with the malts and does not let the malts be that outstaning. ne'er the less, the taste is very good.
MF&D - easy to drink, but not enough carbonation for my taste, hardly any. but, still fitting for the style, I guess.

4.41/5 rDev +5.5%

Poured a dark chocolate brown, almost opaque color into a snifter with a 1/2F head.
Aroma: plum, raisin, fig, which continue strong throughout the tasting.
Mouth feel: pleasantly carbonated- more than other wee heavies I have tasted.
Taste: smooth fig, plum and raisin with a light alcohol finish.
This is a classic wee heavy. The flavors are similar to American beers in the same style which are only slightly more pronounced. This is an impressive beer- low ABV, yet a sipper. The body is lighter than American styles, making it easier to drink.
This is the real deal.
