It took a while but after coming back to this beer a few times I have come to fully appreciate all that there is to offer. Pours a dark amber color with a brown tint. There is a thick head that eventually settles down and a few lingering spots of lacing that lazily attempt to cling to the glass. The aroma is a subtle mixture of dark fruits and sweet malts accompanied by a sugary afterthought. As I sip from my glass the flavor comes alive. Sugary and sweet there is a dominant malt presence that tangles all of the fruity and spicy flavors together followed by a nice warming alcohol effect. The mouthfeel is wonderful and the finish is exceptionally dry. Wow this beer reminds me of a good dopplebock but with a unique twist. Much better if you allow this one to warm up for a while. Absolutely amazing.
