Thanks to someone (probably spycow) for sharing this at Bryna's recital / beer auction.
A - It pours a ruddy mahogany hue, and is capped with a tawny froth that is quite short-lived.
S - The nose is very raisin-y, with some sweet caramel and spicy molasses notes; dried medium and dark fruit is also suggested, maybe even the whole bag of trail mix, nuts and all. Unfortunately, there is a slight cardboard thing with the nose which is holding back my estimation of what is an otherwise nice aroma.
T - The flavor delivers more luxury than the aroma does; where the aroma is interesting, the flavor prefers decadence. The booze is noted, the dark fruit and caramelized sugar is ramped-up, and the general intensity is a degree more. There is a semi-strong note of oxidation that takes away from the rest of the palate, but the brew tastes delicious nonetheless.
M - The feel is just ok; not enhancing nor detracting. Medium-bodied.
O - This did not blow me away, but I certainly enjoyed it.
