Purchased at 2nd St Liquors in Casper for $8.99.

A huge pop when the corked was removed, it pours a very dark brown/chestnut with a +1 finger head of foam.

In the smell, I'm getting dark fruits and caramel malt with some noticeable alcohol.

The dark fruits are the first thing I notice in the taste; strong flavour of plums and raisins along side a caramel sweetness that doesn't go overboard and keeps the beer relatively dry. Man, especially in the finish.

The alcohol is pretty much in my face,(drinking this at room temp; the store just got it in and their supply hadn't made it to the cooler yet) but at 10.4 %abv, I kind of expected it.

Medium body, same for the carbonation, it has a smooth mouthfeel. Drinkability is okay, considering. This *might* be a good one to enjoy now and stash away in the cellar.

Price: $8.99 Served In: Pint Glass
