This pours out a cloudy dark mahogany. The head is stiff and leaves a nice lacing around the edge of the glass. Aroma is sweet at first. Upon further smelling, numerous fruits show up in the malt profile with yeasty esters providing a very complex aroma. Grape juice and a whif of alcohol round out the aroma. The taste is right up there with the aroma. It is smooth, complex. I seem to find something different in every sip with vinous fruits dominating. This is one tasty brew. Mouthfeel is chewy at first, but finishes dry leaving a nice fruity aftertaste. Drinkability is insanely good for a beer this potent.
