Batch #47, shared at a tasting (thanks to whomever brought this one along). Pours a deep brown with some light ruby highlights, a dark-beige, nearly tan head forms and settles to a thin skin atop the brew for at least half of the pour. Aroma is packed with deep, sweet, dark fruits; apple skins, red grapes, plums - almost as much on a bitter "rind and pith" side as it was on the sweet and candied side. Some light spice on the nose, although it's a bit too faint for me to start calling out actual spice names. Something's definitely in there, though.
The taste is full of a blast of sugar-coated plums and more red grapes. Nice sweetness and a smooth maltiness with a bit of toasted caramel and toffee. That damn spiciness is back again and still ambigious to me as to what exactly it may be, but it certain provides a different flavor. Halfway though, I start tasting a sweet and sugary flavor, very similar to "sugar in the raw" (that brown, granulated stuff). Lots of dry, dark malts everywhere. Some light booziness throughout, with a very faint hint of smoky flavors, most noticeable near the tail end. Finish is sweet apple skins and plums. Medium body with average carbonation.
Decent wee heavy, lots of flavors althought the sweetness was a touch unbalanced. Still pretty drinkable and overall easy-going for a 9.5%-er.

A- Pours a very dark brown with a little head but not a ton.
S- A lot of molasses and cinnamon and some other spices. You get that burn from the spices and alcohol in your nose.
T/M- Very nice malt front with a very sweetness that comes through. Then you get the molasses and all the spice that work so great together. It is so smooth you can not even taste the 9.5% very thick and it coats your mouth.
O- A great beer from Pipeworks, this is a style I usually do not drink but this is very good. It is amazingly smooth.
