A - this pours a dark amber red, 1 finger of light brown head, a nice ring with some creamy scattered lace throughout

S - lots of dark fruit, brown sugar, plum, grape, raisin

T - starts strong with dark fruits, raisin, plum, grape, black cherry's, licorice, mild yet noticeable yeast presence, some roasted malt, a bit of warmth from the alcohol with some spice and a mildly sweet finish

M - full body, good carbonation, creamy with some warmth from the alcohol

O - very very enjoyable. complex, dangerously easy to drink. i felt that the flavor balanced out really good after this warmed up a bit. very impressed

From notes on 4/30/14

Poured from a bottle. Dark tan in color with a big fluffy white head. Smell is yeast, bread, and sweet. Very very tasty. Sweet, yet not to much. Good amount of bitterness. This beer is excellent. One of the best beers I've had. Also, I poured it at around 60 degrees. Had one cold and it lost a lot of flavor and aroma from that.
