Poured a deep yet muted brown body with a big foamy head into a snifter. Lacing tries to cling to the glass but falls back down rather quickly. Body is very murky.

Sweet malt and candy sugar. Faint aromas of caramel and candied fruit.

Mainly to the nose, but caramel is faint and near the end. Dark fruit stands out a little more.

Very carbonated. Also very sweet for alcohol in double digits. It hides well, coming more as a slight burn in the back of the throat than a booziness.
