Bottle from MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours an opaque color of darkness with a tiny tan head that evaporates like the rain in an August Orlando. Aromas of heavy brown sugar and lots of vanilla with hints of oak and dark dried fruits. Lightly vinous with hints of caramel, toffee, licorice, and chocolate. I could smell this beer forever. Sweet brown sugar with vanilla up front. A vinous alcohol flavor with a hint of heat comes in next. Light pitted fruits with caramelized sugars and hints of molasses and soy. Finishes with a lingering alcoholic sugary sweetness. Thick body with a light level of carbonation and a sweet syrupy mouthfeel. Big thick sweet beer that I thoroughly enjoyed sipping on for half the night.

T- dark fruits, figs, dates, raisin, oak, and a lot of booze.
M- thin, flat, and dry.
O- alcohol forward. It masks some of the nice malty and sweet fruit flavors.
