I poured the beer into a chalice. Unfortunately I lost a little beer because the beer foamed as soon as I opened the bottle. I suspect there's a little too much yeast in the bottle. The beer was a good dark color. The head never completely dissappated. I smelled fruit, like figs and raisins. The taste was rich with malt and fruit. The beer had a creamy consistency.

11.2 oz bottle was poured into a chalice.

Appearance: A one finger off white head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark amber brown color with no vision of anything.

Smell: Plums, raisins, figs, spicy yeast, warm booze, cherry, and tobacco.

Taste: Lots of dark fruit goodness, spicy yeast, clove, honey, deceiving booze for 9.7%, and a little bitterness in the end too.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth, sweet, little dry, medium to full bodied, low to medium carbonation, and warm booze.

Overall: Very enjoyable beer to start my birthday. Might have to go fact and get another bottle.
