Looks nice, deep dark cherry redish brown,bit less then a finger head that disolves into a nice cap that stays a quite while. Gives that look of "settle down,grab a book, stay a while".
Smells sweeter, a bit yeasty, and of dark fruits. makes me think of hardwood like mahogany. the 10% doesn't show itself to me.
Tastes like dark,dark cherries, raisons,figs and other dark fruits, malty sweetness, and just a bit of hop to round this one out.
Juicy,oily,with a bit of carbonation and hops, very nice and enjoyable. flavor doesn't leave you quickly as it coats the palate, stay a while why don't ya.
I could drink this most every night in the colder months. how many i drink depends on how long i get sucked into my book,or conversation, but i could have a couple and not long for a different beer.
It's winter. i'll be keeping this on hand.
Just wish i had a fire place.

Appearance has a murky reddish-brown beer with a small tan head. Retention and lacing are low.
Smells are of rich malts, brown bread, caramel, chocolate, molasses and dark fruits.
The taste has notes of oak, vanilla and molasses, plus woody hop character. It also has a tannic quality that adds some acidity and bitterness.
Mouthfeel has a lively carbonation and a medium body. The finish has flavors of dark fruit sweetness and more of the tannins that adds acidity.
Overall a nice nightcap of a beer but the tannins were a negative.
