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.

Bottled September 10th, 2013. Halfway through, about an hour and a halfway after pouring, so it's ~60*F and IMO, at its most flavorful prime. (March 9 2014). Poured into a 16oz tulip.
Appearance- Poured aggressively, a deep brown with two fingers of brown head.
Smell- Grassy caramel.
Taste- Sweet, burnt, caramel, dark fruits, then pine. Crisp resiny aftertaste. Very little alcohol presence
Mouthfeel- Slightly thin for the style.Creamy at first, but quickly thins as it warms and oxidizes. Almost watery as I'm writing this, but that is expected 90 minutes after pouring.
One of my favorite beers in one of my favorite styles. Very sweet and malty with a bitter finish. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys strong ales/barleywines, or scotch ales.
