I got this prized brew in a trade with billab914, Thanks Bill!

12oz bottle served in a DeKoninck chalice.

Murky brown color with a foamy beige head that hung on as a layer and left spots of lace all over the place.
The aroma is brown sugar sweetness, dark fruits and yeast.
The taste is absolutely delicious, sweet fruity flavors, dates, raisins and plums.
The mouthfeel is incredible, this brew is dances on the tongue.
Very drinkable.

this beer pours a nice brown color wh a small off white head that recedes quickly. the smell is sweet, slightly spicey and reminds me of concord grapes. the taste follows suit with a very mild yeasty spiciness, with amazing layers of fruit flavors coming through and a nice sweet finish, but not too sweet. the mouthfeel is full and medium carbed overall this beer more than lived up to the hype. would definitely trade for this beer again.
