Poured into a snifter from a 11.2 oz bottle. First off..the name of this beer is prestigious so while reviewing i told myself i would keep it honest.
Poured a dark brown color with a 2 finger head which faded quickly. Small particles caught my eye as they made their eay to the bottom of my glass. Nice presentation indeed.
The aromas are crazy. So many different things going on here. Dried fruits such as raisins, maybe dried purple grapes. Cinnamon and a touch of booze. The taste is as explosive and complex as the smell. Starts of with dried fruits then slowly fades into a sweet flavour very similar to wine. Finishes nice with a warm touch of alcohol. Very well balanced. The mouthfeel is medium to dry, but leaves a nice adtertaste which makes you go back for more. Nothing complements the palate more then the finiah of this ale.
Overall i was impressed. Complex and delicious. If you can get ahold of one of these, please do. I know i will.

Nice medium brown color, with foamy and fast disappearing head. Aroma is of dried fruits. Taste is more of the same and some sweetness. Very drinkable and delicious.
