Pours a dark brown, tinge of red, small amount of beige head. Smells of carmel, fig, dried fruit and a hint of booze. Full flavor, stronge malt backbone, again with the dried fruit, finishes spicy with a mellow alcohol flavor. Incredibly smooth considering it comes in at a stout 10%. A perfect beer for a stormy night (like tonight). I think I have enough of these for a multiyear vertical… Stay tuned.
