Poured into my Ommegang Tulip, and the result is a luscious, creamy finger of light brown head. The retention is great, as is the lacing. The body is red, with orange hues, almost like the flesh of a peach. Low clarity, with billowing clouds of fine bubbles rising to the top.

The nose is amazing, with sour cherries intermingling with chocolate and buttery toffee, caramel malt. Soft oak seems to waft about.

The taste mimics the nose, and is helped along by a very fitting mouthfeel. Medium-full bodied, with a good dose of carbonation.

Looking forward to trying this aged.

A: Poured tawny brown with about 1-2 fingers of white head which dissipated into a thin layer that rimmed the glass.

S: Initial smell is dark raisons, figs and cherries with yeasty bread followed by molasses and dark honey.

T: Dark dried fruits, raisons, figs and plums, together with sweet malts. Finishes with a warming alcohol presence, smooth, not biting. Very similar to a good port.

M: Medium to heavy mouthfeel with good level of carbonation.

O: This is a great sipping quad, very warming and cozy - perfect nightcap. The alcohol is warming but not biting. Very drinkable and well worth seeking out.
