Bottles on 4/6/12***review on 3/16/2013
12oz bottle poured into snifter.
Appearance-pours a deep dark red brown, with a 1 finger khaki head, some but not much lacing. 3.75
Aroma-plums are all over this, along with rasians, black cherry, and some nice malty tones as well. Hints of toffee and butterscotch. 4.25
Taste-right up front i get dried plums dipped in vanilla yogurt. Then toffee and butterscotch come out to play. Carmel comes in too. Some bitterness in the finish as well as some boozeyness. The sweetness and bitterness is perfectly balanced. 4.5
Feel-full bodied, coats palate very well, alcohol is there but not overwhelming. 4.25
Overall- Perfect warmer for a cold night. Do yourself a favor and drink it over an hours span, you need to sit back and enjoy. Bells is starting to become my one of my favorite breweries out there and if they make more beers of this caliber they will slide right into first. 4.25

3.91/5 rDev -5.1%

Amber reddish color with a thin beige head with low retention.
Aroma of dark and red fruits, licorice and port wine.
Intense flavor of prunes, caramels, charred wood, red fruits, house wine, fig, raspberry, smoked, roasted and toasted malts. Very dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium to full body with low carbonation. Alcohol of 10.2% is harmonic with the beer. Sticky feeling.
Beer with good complexity and lower drinkability given its sweetness and sticky flavors, partially expected from the style.
Serving type: on-tap
