11.2 oz. bottle poured into a goblet.

Pours a rich, sunshine-orange-tinted mahogany with a light, fluffy, light cream colored head, leaving large fluffy patches of lace along the sides of the glass.

Aromas of spiced but sweet dark fruit, damp earth, subdued alcohol, and lightly toasted nuts. Complex and intriguing.
Spiced sweet fruit entry, rich but not cloying, leading to an alcohol-induced warm finish and fade that lingers (and lingers). Lightly carbonated and subtle on the whole, making this high alcohol brew deceptively easy to drink.

Bottle poured into stemmed glass

Massive 4finger tan foam settles into a foamy, frothy one finger layer with good lacings . Deep ruby brown in color

Aroma of raisins, port, tobacco, peppery spices

Sweet malt on the tip of the tongue. Raisins, smooth. Hint of alcohol but not biting. Clean, sweet and tangy finish.

Tiny bubbling on the first sip. Nice sudsing.

Great beer , what is there not to like ?
