Bottle poured into snifter. Wonderful aroma of dark fruits including raisins and dates. Tastes of sweet raisins with a slight heat of alcohol after letting sit on the tongue for a bit. Some candi sugar to smooth out the palette. Overall great beer.

12 oz bottle shared by csbosox. Pkg 5/21/14. The pour is a hazed brown with an off white head. The aroma is soft roast, malt sweet along with some cocoa. The taste is the char roast, pleasant tobacco grass, and more of the roast malt. Toffee, caramel and coffee surfaced as the beer warmed. Interesting, clean flavors. The palate is medium to heavy bodied with active carbonation and the dry roast finish. Nice one, thanks for sharing Chris.
