Deep ruby to almost black this ale had a frothy but solid off white head.
The aromas are so interesting year so weird. There's a lot of smokey malts, like a Rauschbier, but it subsides into a dried fruit. The fruit is rather dull in the nose but that means it's not overly sweet.
The flavors almost follow suit as the dried fruit is not sweet, per se, but more in line with a cake or a malt. There is a barley grain and pecan flavor but it drifts off into a smoke or burnt malt flavor. Funny as it may be, I detected a burnt rubber smoking tire like flavor but found it was not off putting but enjoyable...I do love Rauschbiers though.
The feel is very easy, has a moderate carbonation but still a nice thickness and balance.

2012 bottle poured into tulip. Red brown color with lots of off white lacing. Huge cherry and dried fruit aroma...some caramel and almost Belgian style note. Taste is chocolate cherry and dried fruit...some nice spice character. Really fantastic balance or sweet malt and spice/hops. wow..probably one of my favorite warmers. only wish this came in 6-packs.

Dark Cola almost pitch black body wit a dark tan head, fine soft carbonation speckled lacing is left behind. Aroma has dark roasted malts a bit of toffee and cocoa dusted in the air, with an interesting spruce, pine, and light anise character. Flavor has herbal notes more spices with an astringent dark chocolate, herbal tea acidity. Actually quite enjoyable lighter than it sounds medium bodied natural soft carbonation a complex and satisfying winter ale that has aged well.
