Poured from a bottle, into a bell glass, at 40 degrees F.

A: The pour is a cloudy dark brown, like old hickory wood. A thick head of very pale tan forms atop the beer, though lacing is more or less nonexistent (forms quickly, then slides right down the side of the glass). Nigh no light gets through the beer, just enough to let one know this is a seriously dark brown, cloudy brew. Bubbles rise slowly as it sits in the glass.

S: While I am tempted to simply write "awesome in the true sense of the word", that's not exactly helpful. The aroma is malt in all its best forms - toasty, bready toffee caramel goodness. Notes of banana and raisin wreathe through the nose beneath the malt bouquet.

T: Perfect.Toast, cracker, warm whole grain bread, caramel, and toffee, all singing in perfect harmony. Sweetness is undiluted in this beer. Fruity notes pull through as it moves along the palate, bananas and raisins spiced with clove and coriander, and some black cherries. The finish lasts a long while, toffee-slathered toast. The alcohol content is present, but as a background note, adding primarily the warmth.

M: Rich silk syrup, dancing lively and sparkling across the palate, sticking to every surface long after it passes.

O: This is one of my favorite beers brewed, ever, if not my absolute favorite. And yes, I've had BCBS, Ola Dubh Special Reserve 30, St Bernardus Abt 12, Espresso Aged Yeti, Celebrator...I would order this over any of those.
