4.05/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Apperance: Dark brown/black, small head very little lacing. But then again I was in a dark bar.
Smell: Strong malt, no hint of hops, and warm alcohol.
Taste: I picked up on some nice raisin like flavors, and the typical hints of spices in a x-mas type brew. Still overall it leaned on the strong malt/alcohol flavor.
Mouthfeel: Heavy, creamy, and warm
Drinkability: I enjoyed this beer, although I wouldnt recomend having another one after this as it would probably taste like nothing. Still after finishing this beer I wanted another but knew that would probably be too much, so I have drop the drinkability score for nothing else than sheer strength of taste and alcohol.
Overall: Great beer.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer is a dark, rich, ruby-caramel coloring that is slightly murky, and starts with a frothy, bubbly, off-white head that quickly disappears. Slow trails of carbonation bubbles throughout the body of the beer. Aromas of grape, fig, raisin, and date on the forward bouquet, with earthy notes, cherry highlights, hints of booze, and a very subtle spice blend. Very rich and robust nose. Flavors are very rich and chewy forward, with lots of old world fruit and a heavy helping of warmth flourishing the taste buds. The rich and sweet notes blend terrifically, with heavy cherry and fig notes in the forefront. Very rich, robust, and heavy bodied beer, with a building warmth at the end of the palate. There is a sharpness that cuts through the end of the beer, likely a combination of the increased ABV and the carbonation. It truly helps to keep the drinkability up. Sweet candied notes in the aftertaste combine with the old world fruit characteristics, lightening them up a bit right before the slick, clean finish. It's really impressive how a beer this big clears the palate so quickly at the tail-end. Great beer!
