Dark ruby brown color with complex flavors reminiscent of dried fruits. The sweet hints of raisin, fig, and plum are accentuated with rock candy sugar then warmed away by the strength of the dry finish due to its alcoholic strength. This magical brew will warm your spirit. 24 IBU

Draft at Bru Craft. Clear dark auburn pour with only a very thin ring on top. Lots of malty dark fruit. Plums and prunes. Figs and rasins. Black cherries and currants. Molasses candies. Carob. Burnt caramel toast. Hints of Sherry and Port. Medium-full body. High ABV is nicely hidden. Darkly sweet but thoughtful and well balanced.

Raisins and figs punch you in the face. They mask the high alcohol content perfectly. Little malty feel left after the fact. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the most enjoyable beers Iíve had in recent memory. Nose of mixed fruits and tastes of the same, with a sweetness of rock candy and luscious malts. Pours a ruby brownish-black with minimal head. Alcohol is not at all noticed until you have a few......and trust me, youíll WANT a few. Fantastic!

Tap @ Pittsburgh South. Dark auburn with cream head and decent lacing. Smells like raisin bread. Boozy, sweet, spiced, creamy.

Deep ruby pour, small off-white head. Aroma is big figs, dates, dried and dark fruits. Flavor of big dark fruits, candied sugars, and yeast. Great.

On tap at Pour on Center. Mild musky aroma, sweet and fruity with pear and nutty undertones, slightly herbal. Dark coppery amber clear with thin off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with musky fruit and pear. Nutty bitter-sweet finish with sweet finish notes. Nice one.

Fruit leather, dates, fruits, syrup. Amber color. Caramel, fermented fruits, a bit of berry, leather and dried fruit, nice residual sweetness. A touch of root bet in the finish. Medium body, smooth. Very good and nice change of pace.

On tap at Cappyís Loveland, arrived in a snifter. Appearance: Pours a deep red like cherry wood, and forms a thick head of ecru foam that lasts a good long while. Lacing is appropriately decent as well. Smell: Itís mostly Belgian yeast that swells out of the glass - dark stone fruits (specifically cherries and plums), alongside that BSDA/quad candi sweetness. Said sweetness seems a little potent. Taste: This follows the nose almost perfectly, heavy with thick plum and cherry flavors, which take on a somewhat cough-syrupy tone as the beer warms. The candi sweetness is more than present, swirling through to fill every crack and crevice left available by the plum-cherry combo, carrying along hints of spiciness as well. Mouthfeel: Creamy and sticky, this is on the fuller side of medium-bodied. Overall: Not a bad BSDA. Not my favorite, but not bad.
