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.

A nose of rich, dark dried fruits and chewy figs and dates. Smooth and complex, the taste is moist dried cherries, plums, and raisins balanced against rich malts and a touch of sugar. Yeasty and well-carbonated, with plenty of sediment that needs a gentle rolling before opening. The ABV is completely hidden within the beer. Dark and delicious.
