Dark amber pour with a small tan head quickly dissapating. Aroma of malts, ripe fruits, caramel, slightly doughy and toffee. Taste of malts, plums, raisins, caramel, toffee and vanilla. Full bodied, medium carbonation, boozy sweet raisin finish that lasts forever. Delicious excellent beer!

Very nice dark fruit and raisin smell, sweet and malty...lots of raisin on front end with light alcohol burn on the back end...bold flavors and complex..but flavor itself just not my thing

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
fruity caramel aroma..very dark with thin head that disappears no lacing..tastes kind of like world wide stout with way more sweetness,and alcohol burn.nowever not as complex..mostly malt and fruit flavors and a hint of scotch whiskey,it IS strong..hot on the palate and tingly carbonation..overall another great big beer from dfh,possibly the most extremely sweet of them all but somehow this isnít a bad thing..a must try

Dark black (almost like a dark purple) in color. No head. Sugar smell. Taste is tons of dark red fruits like currants, plums, cherries, and prunes. Pretty great though. The fruit really shines.

If you can imagine a beer that tastes like beer, but also has a grapey/raisin taste while not shoving it in your face, you get this. Absolutely fantastic from a fantastic brewery.

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.
