Pours a deep dark ruby brown color with a small tan head that dissipates almost immediately. Thick black currant smell evident as soon as you open the bottle with notes of honey, some citrus, vanilla, chocolate, and alcohol. Lots of vinous black currant flavor with a strong dose of vanilla. Hints of caramel,brown sugar, and some woodiness.r popping out with loads of alcohol in the finish. The intense alcohol is about the only thing that takes away from a perfect 10 for flavor. Body is full and oily with, obviously, plenty of alcohol warming.

Bottle shared by Bret at Kuhnhenn WInter Solstice, he broke it out when I brought out a Westy 12. Very dark with no head. Aroma of candi sugar, malt, caramel, currant, and tea. Very sweet, fruity flavor similar to Tenacious Cassis. Smooth and thick mouthfeel. Very nice!

On tap at Craftsman Ale House. Strong Ale. Poured in small sniffer. No head. String syrup aroma. Complex and strong but not heavy. Enjoyable. Afraid to ask ABV ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Huge thanks to WeeHeavySD for bringing this rarity to the Sea Of Floydster tasting (like we were lacking in the rare beer department..). Hugely sweet caramel-tinged cassis in the aroma. Enjoyable, but definitely bordering on the too sweet side - that said, as a sweet nightcap with some cheesecake, this would definitely work. Sweet, smooth, rich, decadent cassis against a powerful caramel-ish body. Overly sweet, once again, but quite interesting. More caramel and brown sugar and less cassis than in Tenacious Cassis. Virtually no alcohol heat. Not a bad beer, but not totally digging it either. Unique, indeed.
