Dark black (almost like a dark purple) in color. No head. Sugar smell. Taste is tons of dark red fruits like currants, plums, cherries, and prunes. Pretty great though. The fruit really shines.

If you can imagine a beer that tastes like beer, but also has a grapey/raisin taste while not shoving it in your face, you get this. Absolutely fantastic from a fantastic brewery.

DiarmaidBHK (6151) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle from unknown place. Pours brown with a thin white head. Has some solid raisin notes on the nose. Pretty big raisin flavor on the tongue. Fairly smooth and easy to sip which is surprising given the abv. Finished clean. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle. Dark reddish brown pour with a sudsy layer of tan foam. Big notes of brown sugar, booze-soaked raisins, Belgian yeast and toffee in the aroma. Taste blends caramel malt, raisins and dates along with some cherry and fruity esters toward the end. Mouthfeel is relatively dense and creamy with soft carbonation and more raisins and booze in the finish. Overall, the high ABV does a good job of holding all the dark fruit and sugary malt flavors together.
