Bottle from Gator Beverage. Pours murky brownish purple with a half finger of creamy off white head. Aroma is chocolate, figs, molasses, sweet malt, prunes. Flavor is big dark fruit notes with plums and figs, molasses, just a hint of chocolate, some brown sugar, black cherry. Mouthfeel is medium heavy with medium carbonation and light bitterness on the finish. Overall a nice malt bomb that would be warming on a cold winter day. Good stuff.

Cellared for 3 years. Poured into a goblet.

Beautiful rich dark amber color.

This is a nice winter ale, with a lot of depth of flavor. I like that there are no spices as some beers go a little overboard with this in their winter warmers.

I cannot note a discernable change over previous years, but it's till great.

It's easy drinking, not particularly heavy, so the 8.3% can sneak up on you.
