Bottle from unknown place. Pours brown with a thin white head. Has some solid raisin notes on the nose. Pretty big raisin flavor on the tongue. Fairly smooth and easy to sip which is surprising given the abv. Finished clean. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark reddish brown pour with a sudsy layer of tan foam. Big notes of brown sugar, booze-soaked raisins, Belgian yeast and toffee in the aroma. Taste blends caramel malt, raisins and dates along with some cherry and fruity esters toward the end. Mouthfeel is relatively dense and creamy with soft carbonation and more raisins and booze in the finish. Overall, the high ABV does a good job of holding all the dark fruit and sugary malt flavors together.

Talk about big beers, this one coming in at or above 18% abv. I poured this from a bottle (2014 vintage) into a snifter. Aroma is of dark fruits and booze. A rather good blend of booze and dark fruits (raisins). Taste matches the nose but with a burn down the throat and belly. Appearance is a clear burgundy color with a barely noticable light tan ring of foam along the perimeter of the glass. Palate is well balanced with a creaminess that comes from the combination of carbonation and viscosity. An excellent beer I recommend you swwk out. I am sure this will age well. Cheers!

Draft at Tap and Handle last week. Brown appearance with a beige head and light lacing. Kinda boozy, malty, moderately sweet, dark and fruity with a strong finish. Full body. OK.
