8.48 oz bottle purchased at Sams chilled and poured into a tulip glass. The off white head rose and fell, lingers as a film centimeter off the surface. The body is a browned strawberry color with tiny peach highlights, its almost completely opaque. Smell is strong with wonderfully rich aromatics immediately accessible. I get tons of fruit esters strawberry, cherries, candied pears maybe the smallest touch of anise, a tiny hint of alcohol no really hop aroma, which is fine, because Im in heaven. Taste as with the smell is wonderful, complex and immediately accessible. I get candied pears with rummed plums and candied apples, with a slow moving alcohol warmth. It would be so easy to drink this frivolously and feel its true strength, but Im going my best. This is a great beer, Ill pick up more if they are around, but I really wish the bottle was bigger. Until next year scaldis.

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!
