Pours a murky, brown color with a tan head that falls to a small head leaving thin lace.

Sweet dried fruit aroma. Getting a sweet mocha aroma too?

Full flavor. Sweet, mild fruitiness. Sweet malt. Yummy.

Medium to full in the mouth. Fizzy and tangy.

Awesome beer. One of my favorites.

Pours a murky pond like raisin brown. Some sediment slowly settles to the bottom. 1 finger of light tan head then settles to a thin film. Scent is of dark fruit, raisons, plums, prunes, cherries and figs with light spices and alcohol esters. Taste follows the scent with dark alcohol soaked fruit, christmas spices, brown sugar and alcohol esters. Snappy carbonation makes this go down faster than you would expect. Delicious.
