Appearance:
Deep reddish mahogany body and a decent light brown head. Plenty of lacing and retention.

Aroma:
Tons of sweet, dark fruits with dominant raisin. Bright brown sugar and a hint of cinnamon. Caramel malts. Quite pungent but in a good way.

Taste:
Follows the nose closely but with some added surprises, mainly in the form of a lot of tropical fruit. Sweet pineapple and peach laced with raisin and fig and roasted caramel. A bit boozy on the end, but works well.

Mouthfeel:
Smooth and easy to drink. Medium body and light carbonation. Sweet finish.

Overall:
An awesome beer that packs a punch and plenty of flavor. A must have for fans of bold, dark beers.
