12 oz bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a gorgeous, completely opaque, almost pitch-black color with two fingers of white-colored head that slowly dissolved away into a lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Wow! Very aromatic, with tons of bready, toasted malt and stone fruit up front, imparting notes of freshly toasted sweet bread, and raisins, apricots, currents, figs and prunes. I also get tons of toffee and brown sugar, as well as spices of clove, cinnamon, all-spice and black pepper. Very complex, rich, and inviting.

Taste: Delicious! There’s tons of bready, toasted malt and stone fruit up front, imparting flavors of freshly toasted sweet bread, and raisins, apricots, currents, figs and prunes. I also get tons of toffee and brown sugar-like sweetness, as well as spices of clove, cinnamon, all-spice and black pepper. Very complex, rich, and inviting. Outstanding!

Mouthfeel: Chewy, smooth and creamy as there is very little in the way of carbonation. With an ABV of 10.0%, there is very little in the way of alcohol on the palate, which is surprising. There’s much less than I was expecting with that high of an ABV. It’s extremely well masked.

Overall: This is a delicious beer! Amazing aromas, and flavor to match! I see why it is so highly regarded! It’s absolutely outstanding!

This is really one of the greats in this style - it's somehow both heavy and light at the same time, whereas some old ales (which I also love) are a bit more bludgeoning with malt and ABV. A refreshing, invigorating sipper for rainy evenings.
