12oz bottle pour into a Leffe Chalice. *bought as craft pack at WF so may be a bit stale.
**Came back to upgrade this a bit, with a fresher bottle. More lacing and stickiness, not flat at all. (but still too sweet and pruney, fruit cake for me, at least for summer time - still needs a stinky cheese to go with).

LOOK: Black as tar, thick creamy tan head, but first bottle fades too fast and leaves too little lacing. Flat. Prune juice like.

SMELL: Burnt sugar, boardwalk, cocoa powder, confection kitchen, sweet, prunes, hay, alcohol.

TASTE: Creamy, full bodied, licorice first, a melange of chocolate, sweet brown bread, molasses, roast coffee, prunes, flour less chocolate cake, fruitcake, with a sweet finish. (not much hop bitterness). Given the complexity, the mishmash, this is a last beer of the evening brew.

MF. Flattish, but smooth and fat and juicy.

Overall - Complex and a bit messy. Don't need my beers this sweet. Want some heavy cream cheeses, and smelly rind to go with this. Dessert beer - yes! Winter - beer - Yes! Tastes like an aged stout…. Not as good as Youngs Double or Imperial Stouts I have tried.
