Thanks to WankelEngine for the pour

2oz into a tasting snifter.

A- very little head, potentially a factor of the small pour. Dark blackish brownish purpleish.

S- liquor, dark fruit, herbs, sweetness.

T- much yeast, not as much fruit as the aroma, Booze, dried fruit.

M- incredibly pleasant warming sensation, a little drying and sticky, latent figgy notes and molasses.

O- ooovvvveeerrrraaaattteeed. Tasty, lovely, honored to try it. Thanks again to WankelEngine.

I really wasn't expecting this beer to be as good as the reviews. But after tasting it, my expectation of what a good beer is has changed.

Overall a sweet, fragrant beer that doesn't feel like it's anywhere near its rated alcohol content. Easy to drink, with no bitter after taste. Essentially it's perfect.
