Bottle into stemware.

A: Dark reddish brown with a big beige head. Scattered lacing.

S: Raisin blends with plum, cherry, cognac, and oak. There's a little vanilla in there and a touch of orange with brown sugar, bread, and caramel.

T: Raisin, cognac, oak, some lightly sour cherry. Malt is bready and robust. Light alcohol presence. A little plum and orange. Tannic fruity finish.

M: Lower full body with lower high carbonation. Creamy, sticky mouthfeel with warming.

Overall: Pretty nice and a successful beer version of an old fashioned.
