(Served in a snifter)
This beer pours a midnight black body that glows a hint at the base of the glass and a tan thin film that breaks up after a few sips. The soft sweetness of malt has some notes of dried dark fruit coming through as it opens up and a brassy quality to it in the finish. The soft tang of pot caramel leads to some caramel malt flavors and the sweetness grows in the finish as it warms. There is a soft note of iodine in the finish when it is pretty warm. The soft alcohol heat grows and cuts the sweetness nicely but never becomes hot.

This beer has some nice smooth alcohol character and the malt sweetness is there aswell. It just doesn't have the yeast characters I would like to taste in a big quad. I can't see age doing much for this beer, if the alcohol mellows it will be just to much sweetness with nothing to balance it.
