Pours a dark brown to black with a thin tan ring. Light carbonation with plenty of lacing. aroma of sweet dark fruits, roasted malts with hints of molasses and licorice. Medium body with a creamy texture. Smooth, full mouth feel with lasting flavors and big warm finish. Very enjoyable, tasty, not harsh and masks the alcohol well. could have been a tad thicker. Gets better as it warms up.
