Pours a deep mahogany brown w/ a medium sized semi creamy froth. Froth is spattered and recedes slowly to reveal a fine canopy surounded by a complete wall of lace. Aromas of thick malted caramel and cocoa. Full nectar w/ soft residual effers. If there ever was a seductive brew, this is it. Full yet soft and lucious mouthfeel w/ bold yet refined flavors. The hop profile is intricately weaved throughout holding it all together like only a good woman can. Malty w/ ample caramel, cocoa, slight roasted coffee and vanilla bean. Theres a slight nutty flavor that reveals itself as she warms. The finish is juicy and hangs around for a while w/ a perfect bittering of the asprin sort. Overall: a well balanced brew of a sensuous nature. Theres nothing about this brew thats short of true classic. Connoisseurs Choice! Highly Recommended.

Absolutely beautiful color. Thin foam layer which leaves small islands of foam after a short time. The aroma is incredibly delicate black currant, lots of other soft fruits and some smoke and a little mocha. The taste is almost as heavy as the aroma might indicate, but it has a nice sweetness of berries, distinct mocha and slightly nutty flavor that together with smoked malt gives the unique fullness and very different composition than expected. Hard Roasted malt is the back of the taste spectrum. It has clearly port tones.
