Birthday present from my lovely wife!

Bottle poured to a tulip glass. Rare cold night in Florida, sipping this by a fire - perfect!

A - Huge fluffy head on the pour. Fell somewhat quickly to a thin layer of tight tan bubbles. Somewhat cloudy, rich dark copper color.

S - Complex rich sweet caramel malt aroma. Lots of dark fruit - figs, raisins, prunes. No hops, low sweet alcohol.

T - Follows the aroma. Rich complex malt, with toffee and toasted bread. Quite sweet, but not cloying. The alcohol bite helps balance the sweetness. Low hop bitterness. Low spiciness, maybe from hops.

M - mouth-filling effervescent carbonation. Full body, but the carbonation makes this beer quite drinkable. Moderate alcohol warmth, but not hot or harsh.

O - Outstanding beer. Big, and I wouldn't likely drink more than one at a sitting, but that sitting would always be quite enjoyable.
