A-dark burnt brown with a medium dark tan head

S-rock candy sugar and dried fruits like figs, raisins, dates, maybe an apricot too.

T-Seriously sweet, rich brown sugar, creme brule levels of burnt sugar and carmelization, with dark dried fruitiness similar rum soaked raisins. Just a hint of hops.

Mouthfeel- Sugar sugar and more sugar. this beer is for the sweet tooth for sure. the finish is extremely long and hangs on the palate for the rest of the evening.

O-Very good if you take your dark ales on the sweet side. Definitely lives up to its name. Not anywhere close to a balanced beer but for what it is its great.

I'd go back for another bottle, its the kind of after dinner dessert beer that one could sip into the evening.

A - Dark brown with a thin layer of tan-khaki head. Fades fairly quickly.

S - Sweet dark caramel malts, Belgian yeast, clove and other spices, raisins and other dark fruits, residual raw sugars, some booze.

T - Sweet dark caramel malts, raisins, plums, and other dark fruits, Belgian yeast, clove and other spices, residual and raw sugars, and a bit of booze.

M - Full bodied with moderate-mild carbonation. Smooth with a sweet, fruity, spicy, and warming finish.

D - Nice and complex but well balanced. The raw sugars add some nice complexity.

500 ml bottle with 17.07.2012 stamped on it, label says best before 2015. Served in a goblet, the beer pours dark brown with about a half inch tan head that fizzled away quickly. Not much lacing. Aroma is sweet, the brew smells like candy and brown sugar, dark fruit, caramel, and molasses. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like brown sugar, caramel, molasses, dark fruit, and a bit of pear. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit creamy and sticky with moderate carbonation. I liked this brew, and I wouldn't mind trying it again sometime in the future.
