This beer pours a deep brown with a solid head. The complex aroma consists of chocolate, dry yeast, prunes, figs, golden brown toast, wintergreen, sasparilla, licorice and oak. The flavor leads with mildly sweet toasty flavors, chocolate, prune, and figs, and then a slightly yeasty finish. The mouthfeel is rich but understated. Overall this is a very enjoyable beer for a cold day.
