Nose: wine and plum, some sweet malt.
Pours hazy chestnut under a rocky slowly dissipating 3” tan tinted white foam collar. Classic Belgian Window lace.
Palate: plum, fruit cake, caramel, toffee, rich with long lingering toffee flavors well into the finish. Some plum flavors in the finish. The hops are not huge but they are there providing balance. Moderately sweet.
Medium full body with above average carbonation, warming.
