A: A dark, caramel colored beer. The tan head is about 1 finger high and has almost no retention whatsoever, or lacing.

S: Clove, dark fruits, and a fair amount of the alcoholic phenols, as well as a pungent hit of just plain alcohol.

T: Lots of malts right off the bat, with hints of caramel and toffee and a slight toasty flavor. After the malts there is a peppery spice, along with a bit of sweet clove-like flavors as well as banana as the beer warms. The finish is amazingly sweet and fruit-like, bringing in hints of apple and raisin. The alcohol rides the flavor from start to finish without ever becoming overpowering, and warms the belly nicely.

M: moderate body, heavy on the carbonation, has a syrupy feel on the back of the throat due to the stickiness.

O: Definitely a nice beer. The alcohol is present, but I wouldn't have put it at 12% ABV based upon taste alone. Well balanced, a fair amount of complexity. Definitely not a beer that I would drink all the time, but it is certainly well-crafted.

A - Cloudy dark reddish brown with a creamy off white head that persists for a good while and settles down to a solid flat cap.

S - Fruity, spicy, sweet, and a little winey. Almost that candi smell too.

T - Luxuriously smooth, mild, malty like cereal. I don't get as much of the fruity note from the aroma though there's a hint of banana and maybe a raisiny thing going on. A little sting is left on the tongue and in the back of the throat afterwards. That's unusual - it's almost like a whisper of jalapeno sting minus the jalapeno flavor. It's never too prominent and fades gradually but lasts a really long time. I don't get the strong alcohol taste some others have mentioned.

M - soft, medium-thick, more carbonation than expected

O - A really pleasant, soft, rich, malty beer with a lot going on. Drinks like a thick stout but with much more malt and no bitterness.
