A: The beer is clear dark reddish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high dense beige head that quickly died down, leaving only a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface that never completely faded away.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of dark fruits and yeast in the nose.
T: Like the smell, flavors of dark fruits stand out in the taste (cherries, plums and prunes come to mind) and there is some malty sweetness. Hints of spices are noticeable in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and relatively smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is relatively easy to drink considering its strength because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste.

Note: 2010 vintage

Bottle shared at the May Santa Cruz tasting. Pours a dark cola color with a poofy tan head. Aromas of yeasty brown bread, candi sugar, vanilla, alcohol. Flavors of dark and red fruits with coriander, fruitcake, raisin, vanilla, licorice, and booze. A bit too hot and perfumey on the palate at 11 percent.

Pours an amber color with a thick two finger pillowy head which gives way to skim and leaves nice strand of lace on the glass. The aroma is of dark fruits and caramel malts. The aroma is slightly faint. The taste has a caramel malt backbone, over top there are flavors of dark fruits. There is also a slight milk chocolate taste along with brandy like flavors. At the end there is a very slight hop bite. The mouthfeel is moderatley carbonated. Overall this is a good beer, the aroma was a little faint, but the taste was good and complex.
