Draft, at the Columbia Alehouse, poured into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, deep, dark mahogany color with a finger of oatmeal-colored head that dissolved away into a lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic, with lots of roasted malt and dried stone fruit, such as raisins, prunes, figs and dates up front, followed by some candied sugar, dark molasses, vanilla, some subtle lavender, a touch of oak, and some piney, grassy hops.

Taste: Exactly like the aroma. Lots of roasted malt and dried stone fruit, such as raisins, prunes, figs and dates up front, followed by some candied sugar, dark molasses, vanilla, some subtle lavender, a touch of oak, and some boozy alcohol, all balanced beautifully with piney, grassy hops.

Mouthfeel: Chewy, smooth, viscous. With an ABV of 10.5%, there is quite a lot of pleasant alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is an unbelievably awesome beer! Beautifully balanced between bready malt, sweetness and floral, bitter hops!
