i love the pop of a cork. slow not vigorous pour into my NBB snifter the color was a brilliant ruby red, much like cranberry juice with a nice thick, small bubble head of light tan. bought 1/2 inch thick which slowly disipated as i drank. the aroma of sourgrapes, and sweet malt burst through the rim. slightly winey taste to it, grape and banana fruit, spicy kick it was medium bodied with no long after taste, just a slight sour note. all in all pretty good, little too sour to drink more than one 750. high carbonation and dry finish

Pours from the bottle a dark, dark brown with a substantial foamy off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of dark fruit and malt. Big taste of prunes, plums, spices and sweetness. Medium mouth that coats the tongue well, leaving a nice lingering taste. A wonderful example of the style, and one that I'll have to revisit often.

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.
