Deep brown, almost black pour into a nonic pub glass with a tan head that leaves a thick lace. Theres some chocolate malt in there for certain, it comes out big time on the nose. Also some flowery kinda hops smells. It tastes big and malty, with roasted flavors and first and then straight chocolate at the end. It has more of a hop presence than I expected, and this cleans up the sugars nice. As it warms a bit the chocolate may over power it more than I'd like. Anyway, pretty great beer. I think I may like some American microbrews interpretation of this style a little more but who cares really.

Pours a foamy tan 3 finger head with a dark brown color. The aroma and taste consist of sweet malt, caramel, dark fruit, and molasses. The flavor is sweet and spicy, with some bitterness at the end. Smooth, creamy, heavy bodied, and lightly carbonated. Very drinkable.

deep brown to black with a smallish light tan head that recedes to a nice film with some nice lacing.

nice aroma of brown sugar, molasses, and lots of sweet dark fruits.

flavor again is heavy in brown sugar and molasses, with some dark caramelized sugars and some prune juice, sweetened dark fruits, a bit of milk chocolate covered raisins, maple syrup. makes for a very sweet beer, yet some complex flavors. brown sugar sticks around on the back end for quite some time.

very syrupy mouthfeel leads to an overall medium body with a light carbonation that works well for the sticky sweet flavors.

drinks well. probably the best of the style I have tried to date. its sweet without becoming cloying. its complex without becoming a mess. the alcohol is barely noticeable and provides no harshness, just a slightly warm feel. though the style is not for me, and I don't see myself purchasing this too much, as viewed within the style parameters, this beer is wonderful.
