Aroma is sweet and sugary, sort of like rock candy or something of that sort. Dried fruit, kind of like a date, caramel, malty and hoppy. Taste is more dark fruit, sweet/sugar, malty.

mcberko (6300) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 20, 2014
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark cloudy mahogany / amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out caramel, dark fruits, and candied sugar. Flavour is intensely sweet and boozy, with loads of rich caramel, lots of candied sugar, and all of the 10% (and then some) showing. Lots of residual sweetness and loads of alcohol heat. Not refined or elegant in any way - I have no idea how this has such high ratings. Drinkable in very small portions, but way too sweet for me, and too boozy.

BMMillsy (1325) - Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2013
2011 bottle from Adam. thanks! Pours a deep murky amber with small khaki head.aroma of figs, plums, caramel, vanilla, and even a bit of bourbon and booze, though this isn’t the BA version. Flavor is big fruits, mostly figs, some apple, raisins, bready, toffee biscuits. A hint of some booze. Yum. Creamy and heavy body, but with plenty of carbonation keeping this drinkable. Very nice beer, and only my 2nd from CW. I can definitely see this turning out beautifully in a bourbon barrel.
