Bottle from trade with matboz. Pours a deep red-brown hazy body with a small white head. Nose is sweet strong caramel tones with raisins, toffee and hints of dried fruits. Taste is raisins, marzipan, burnt sugar, hints of smooth caramel and mild chocolate. Some hoppy pine notes, although toned down considerable, are lingering in the back. Full body, soft carbonation. Very, very heavy duty and overall delicious stuff from FW.
