Thick & frothy white head sits on top of a dark red/brown beer that is almost opaque. Nice lacing on the glass. I smell white wine, citrus, raisin bread, some cinnamon. Flavor is out of this world: caramel, grapes, more of that raisin bread, brown sugar with a perfectly balanced but slightly chocolatey-bitter finish--a lot going on! The carbonation is really nice on the tongue. Slight warming from the alcohol. Exceptional.
