Clear mahogany brew with a great head of foam and lacing.
Smells very malt forward with caramel and fruity with raisins and plums. Some spice that I notice. ..nutmeg.
Tastes exactly like it smells. Super smooth, no intrusion by the alcohol. Kinda reminds me of an aged English Old Ale or Barleywine.

750ml bottle. Burgundy brown unfiltered body. Steady beige head. Creamy, sweet. Almost has a cinnamon nutmeg allspice thing going on, pumpkin meets christmas beer spices, but really quite mellow and well incorporated into the amber malts. Somewhat like a big Dubbel as well. I have always enjoyed the creamy, doughy mouthfeel of Petrus beers, and I enjoy this one as well. Brown chocolate, raisin, hints of cherry. Great beer.

From 75cl into Lagunitas. Cold recently in Belgium so this seemed like a good choice to bring up from the cellar. Attractive bottle with the red cover. Pours a red-brown with an average head. Smell is brown sugar edging into raisin and a feint of cinnamon. A bit on the sweet side but the alcohol is completely hidden. Actually a really good beer - nice for sipping in the cold!

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a dark amber color with a tan head. The aroma was of malts, caramel, spices and some berries. The taste was sweet with malts, yeast, caramel, berries, brown sugar, some spices and a little booze. It had a medium body with lively carbonation and a sweet finish with some warming alcohol. Tasty.
