Appearance: Hazy deep mahogany brown, with a small tan head, which quickly fades away. Thin fine-beaded lacing coats the glass walls.
Aroma: Sweet vinous alcohol and dark fruit dominate the aroma. The aroma is profound and almost brandy-like.
Taste: Opens with toasted grains hebal hops, and moderate sweet alcohol. As the taste progresses, moderate herbal hops asset themselves. Later in the taste, dark fruits appear, in particular, figs. Late in the taste, there is also a faint wave of vanilla and wood. Finishes with a long, lingering, but mild hop presence, and sweet alcohol.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, full, and very pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: Very nice, a worthy effort.
Presentation: Packaged in an eleven point two ounce Euro-style brown glass long-neck bottle, served in a New Belgium chalice.
