Thanks to Bobby for sharing this. A new style tick for me in the process!

A: The beer pours a copper sort of color with a thin ring of off-white foam--there's no real head to speak of.

S: Smells quite sweet. Lots of white and brown sugar notes to start. Seems to be some toffee and a lot of sherry notes (including alcohol). I get some miscellaneous fruits, but raisins in particular.

T: Quite a lot of fruit on the palate. I get pears, apples, and raisins for the most part. Again, a strong sugar presence with brown sugar, toffee, and caramel. The oak is well represented and there is a definite alcohol flavor.

M: Medium in both body and carbonation.

D: Not sure why this one is so talked up, I thought it was pretty mediocre.

The aroma is fruity and malty with alcohol and a bit of hops to balance. The appearance is hazy medium brown. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a good beer that somehow doesn't score that high. It just seems rather good at first and declines with time.
