Bottle at home on nicest day of spring which I’ll count as a Christmas present so this is appropriate. Pours fine amber thin head. Nose is some molasses and dark fruit. Tastes of molasses, malt, yeasty, plum, sour cherry, green raisins, caramel, hint of cough syrup. Sweet but not cloying boozy but not harsh.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This pours a clear dark copper with a tiny head of foam that shrinks quickly to just a ring around the glass.
The smell is malty, sweet like Port, with a slight bitter note or two.
Yummy the taste is.Besides the Port like character, which I almost always dig, I get some nice nutty tones and more than a bit of bitterness.
Medium body goes well with the light carbonation.
A real treat of a beer for me and my palate.
