Poured from a can into a snifter, the beer is a dark, slightly hazed, amber-copper coloring with a thin, filmy ring of head on the surface. Aromas of tropical fruits, heavily ladened with mango and pineapple, with a subtle roasting and some darkly sweet fig in the backbone. Also some citrusy spicing throughout the nose, with orange zest and pepper dancing around the sinuses. Flavors are heavily roasted and rich, with a dark caramel backbone and tobacco highlight. Pepper and tamarind spicing throughout, with a subtle boozey kick to keep your tastebuds going. The tropical fruit becomes a much more blended characteristic on the palate, with a fruit punch feel, but much more concentrated. Resiny characteristics in the aftertaste, adding to the richness. Sharp, boozy kick at the end of the aftertaste, leading to a slick, slightly bitter, tangy lingering finish. Tasty brew.

From a tiny little can, this barley wine is a hazy chestnut color with a thin head. It is very dry, with a lot of citrusy and resiny hops. Perfume, fruit (ripe prach and orange) alcoholic scents dominate the beer. The taste has malt and sugar flavors. Heavy bitterness. Full and rich mouthfeel.
