This beer is 3.5 years old...
Pours an opaque deep brown with a frothy tan head that lingers.
Aroma is comprised of chocolate, raisins, prunes, and figs.
Oxidation has set in and done this brew some good. Notes of raisins, prunes, and plums emerge in the flavor. There's a touch of diacetyl. The chocolate malt backbone is still strong, with a lightly bitter finish. Nutty notes weave throughout. Floral hops accent the aftertaste.
Body is a touch full, with modest carbonation and light alcohol warmth.
Nice beer that has some shelf life. I'm sure the fruity notes are due to age.
