Bottle. A dark brown beer topped by a dense, light beige head. Booze, dried fruits, caramel, rum raisin, wood and some ash. Some hoppy notes. It’s quite warming on the palate, with rum raisin, caramel, wood, ash, bitterness, pine cones and a touch of alcohol. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting boozy and lemony finish with licorice and roasted malts. Pretty nice, but a tad boozy. 140717
