Poured from bottle into chalice.

A - Half finger, oatmeal colored, soapy head. Head ends up as a whisp on top and around the edge of the glass. Dark brown or super dark amber in color.

S - Honeysweet malts, dark fruit (plums, raisins), a little bit of bubble gum, with only the slightest hint of alcohol.

T - Sweet dark fruit dominates the beginning of the sip. Middle of the tongue gets some caramel malt and a bit of hops. Finishes sweet and almost dry. Amazing layering of tastes here with raisin, apricot, candy sugar, caramel malt, and countless other things going on here.

M - Medium to full bodied with spot on carbonation. Near perfection.

D - For a high alcohol beer, you don't even know it when you are drinking it. Not one to be consumed quickly, but rather savored for all the great taste it provides. Simply a great beer.
