Very smooth, slightly sweet malty taste fading to bitter with just a hint of the alcohol. A very good brew.

Old bottle (3 ish years, I think). Very dark brown with nice tan head that dissipated. Smells like good dark bread, dark fruits, and a hint of sour. Smooth for such a high ABV. Nicely balanced. I see why people like this. (and I like it too.)

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Vertical tasting. Old bottle (4 years, 4 month old) Nose is sweet bread, dark fruit, brown sugar. Taste has lots of fruity esters, sweet chestnuts and figs. Soft mouthfeel. Dark and cloudy in appearance, minimal head, but it sticks around. Newer bottle (1 year, 10 months old) is obviously similar but differs as such: Nose is less intense, lighter and there is some citrus and peppery notes and less bread in the smell and taste. More carbonation and head. And a lighter, almost reddish hue. This monster holds up really nice, but I prefer the fresher liquid.

Bottle- pours dark brown with an off white head. Plum, raisin, chocolate and sweet malts. Taste is sweet up front then a slow burn into a dry bittersweet finish. Well balanced palate. Would never know its 11.3%.
