Poured into a tulip-type glass. Deep ruby color--quite clear before including the yeast. White head with small, dense bubbles quickly falls, though leaving persistent lacing.
The smell of this brew was of candied apples, figs, and a backnote of a sweet dessert wine.
Like the smell, there is a sweet dessert wine flavor, a sweet hint of alcoholic heat, and deep candied figs and apricots. The carbonation lends a peppery quality to the taste. There is a sweetness in the background. Though this is a pretty serious beer, it isn't terribly heavy in texture.
Serving type: bottle
