I've been wanting to try this for a while and it did not disappoint. Starts of with a decadent aroma of brown sugar, caramel, brandy, and dark fruits. Definitely a dessert beer. The flavors are huge with caramel, brown sugar, and chocolate blending with a medley of complex fruit flavors like Apple, cherry, figs, and raisins. It's a touch too sweet and doesn't have a lot of barrel character, but I love the flavors going on here. Mouth feel is thick and rich like the rest of this beer.
