Pours a medium brown with a one inch beige head that dissipates quickly to a ring and leaves no lacing. Smells of yeast, caramel, dark fruits and bread. Tastes follows the nose with additional sourdough like taste, alcohol and toffee. Medium bodied, light to moderate carbonation, drinks more like a wine or port than a beer.

Love the grape-y-ness of this beer.

Aroma: caramel, dark fruit

Taste: The flavor is dark raisin bread, some caramel, dark fruit like figs and raisins.

Feel: medium-full, thick

Dark brown in color with a fingernail of beige around the rim and covering the majority of the top. The aroma is of caramel and toffee. I'm tasting cola, toffee, caramel, and marzipan. The mouth is lightly sticky and yet smooth and hides the alcohol very well.
