Bottle. Pours a dark ruby/brown with small beige head. Smell is sweet toffee, fruity esters, yeast, figs. Taste was not as sweet as expected based on smell. Raw fruits, raisins, tad tangy/zesty, yeast notes. As it warmed even some cocoa nib notes popped out. Medium bodied, rich and not overly sweet/syrupy. Nice.

A-Dark fruit, cigar, slight smokev

T-Sweet, carmel, raisin,, cigar leaf
P-rich body, slight carbonation
O-If you have the discipline to age a couple years, this beer gets incredibly smooth and even more complex dark fruit notes. Cigar notes are wonderful.
