Poured into a chalice.
The deep brown ale yields a massive, rocky cream colored head that fades to about 1/4 inch and then simply stops, leaving a thick blanket. Ample lacing clings to the sides of the glass. A good looking brew.
Smells of caramel malts, toffee, dark fruit - cherries raisin and toasted bread.
The taste is predominantly dark fruits; cherries, raisins, plums along with some nice spicing. Maybe a hint of cloves, nuts and some vanilla along with some faint hop presence. The alcohol is definitely present and warming, but it is nice on a cold night.
Medium, well carbonated.
A tremendous brew. A pleasure to savor and enjoy slowly - the temptation is there to go nuts, but some restraint is in order given that I only have one bottle. Wow.
