My God in heaven, my luck with beer over the last two days has been amazing. This brew poured out to a dark brown color with a great 1/2 inch head of tan foam. Medium high level of carbonation. Aromas of yeast, cashews, bread, plumbs and mature malt fills the nose. Flavors of roasted nuts, heavy and full malts, a marked brown sugar element and yeasty bread notes keep the palate occupied and happy. Mouthfeel is smooth and almost creamy, with a tamed level of carbonation keeping the flavors vibrant. Great drinkability. This is another amazing, world class beer. Highly Recommended.

Outstanding looking brew! Poured into my St. B goblet...cinnamon/muddy brown with a frothy top.

The aroma is very yeasty and well spiced. malt sweetness, candied sugar, banana, raisins and prunes. throw in some earthy and musty hops to round out this phenominal smelling beer.

The flavor is equal parts sweet and spice with a splash of tart. overrippened fruits with clove and pepper mostly. dry finish.

The feel is a medium full bodied brew with ample and lively carbonation. spot on for style.

The drinkabilty doesn't get much better: great flavor and well hidden ABV plus a wonderful mouthfeel all add up to another winner from St. B
