A - Caramel in color and very hazy. A thin off-white head caps the beer and quickly fades to an even thinner ring around the edge. Leaves a nice thin sheet of lace on the glass though.

S - Big sweet caramel and brandy notes. Very boozy. A citrus hoppiness is present as well. Everything in the nose is big but it all seems to play off each other well.

T - Light caramel sweetness quickly overcome by a taste of alcohol soaked fruits. An interesting mix of raisins, peach, and a little citrus. The alcohol is very present throughout with a nice warming feel to it. An excellent mix of tastes.

M/D - Medium bodied with a sticky, resinous feel. For the sttle, this is very high on the drinkability scale. Quite the sipper.

This one tasted a bit off...there were hoppy, sour, then sweet notes all over the place with a bit too much carbonation.

If you took a Zombie Dust and let it sit in the fridge for a year, you would probably wind up with a similar tasting beer.
