I can't think of a better beer. Intense, powerful, rich, creamy, and it imparts a profound sense of superiority. This one separates the boys from the men.

Bottle poured into stemmed glass

Massive 4finger tan foam settles into a foamy, frothy one finger layer with good lacings . Deep ruby brown in color

Aroma of raisins, port, tobacco, peppery spices

Sweet malt on the tip of the tongue. Raisins, smooth. Hint of alcohol but not biting. Clean, sweet and tangy finish.

Tiny bubbling on the first sip. Nice sudsing.

Great beer , what is there not to like ?
