Appearance: A crystal-clear dark brown beer with some red highlights around the edges. The tan head was dense, but it didn't rise up to even a finger thick with a rough pour. It dissipated quickly and left only a few patches of bubbles behind in the span of a couple of minutes.
Smell: Sweet and malty was the name of the game. Right after the pour, the aroma was heavy with sweet malt and toffee, with just a hint of fruit in the background. After the beer had sat in the glass for a few minutes, the fruit rose up to dominate. There was some noticeable cherry, but the main players were raisins and dates. Almost like candied fruit.
Mouthfeel: Dead in the mouth will no evident carbonation. That, of course, made the beer smooth, but in a thin, watery way. Weak, light body.
Taste: Very mild and not nearly as sweet as I was expecting. The sweet malt was more evident in the aftertaste that anywhere else. The flavors upfront were more fruity, with cherry and a little raisin. The finish had a surprising amount of hops bitterness for the style, which dried out the beer and countered the late-emerging malts. There was a little warm alcohol on the finish, too.

A- Deep mahogany with amber accents. Dense khaki head
S- Smokey peat, cocoa nibs, crystal malts.
T- Follows nose well. Slight bitterness present for a style that doesn't normally have it. Lots of roasted malts and caramel. Some bready character.
M- Creamy, lighter body. Rich, yet smooth. Dry finish.
O- Very good. Top notch for the style.
