APP- Lightly-hazy chestnut color, with thick, creamy off-white head with lace.
AROMA- fig date, pear, molasses, rich malt, and tres leches tone throughout...all moderately strong, no alcohol, light diacetyl possibly, light goldings hop note,.
FLAVOR- light roasty flavor is unexpected and out of style. Big cordial cherry character. chocolate-covered raisin, chewy munich/ melanoidin/ bock-like center. Light vanilla alcohol is perfectly smooth. Light cigar tobacco in finish...oxidation? autolysis?
MF- medium-full body with lush malt center and creamy with medium-high carbonation. Lingering bitter and lightly roasted finish.
Overall- very tasty beer but atypical with the roast. A dubbel that drinks like a quad. This sample was lightly oxidized i think.

My dad passed away a couple of years ago. He was a very enthusiastic fellow about many things, one of which was fruitcake (yeah, I know). In the fruitcake family, at least the way he made it, was pecan whiskey cake. Even people who hate fruitcake loved his pecan whiskey cake. This beer reminds me of that cake - dark, dried fruity, accompanied by the pleasant presence of alcohol, etc.. Whenever I drink this beer, I think of my dad and his enthusiasm for making unusual desserts.

Deep brown with amber highlights and a slightly frothy ivory head.
Aroma is figgy, with notes of dates. Fairly sweet and bready, with candi sugar.
Fairly raisiny flavor, with light alcohol and a hint of burnt sugar, with a finish of menthol and light dryness. Slight sharp cherry notes are evident. Yeast character is somewhat spicy.
Body is full, with modest carbonation and noted alcohol heat.
Very raisin dominant flavor, with light sweetness and more bready notes. The finish is fairly dry. Alcohol is noticeable. Honestly, I expected more complexity.
Serving type: on-tap
