This is what I call an after dinner beer. The taste is divine, taste like the beer version of a fine cognac, this is due to the high alcohol content of the beer. This is one of my favorite beers.
I am somewhat a world traveler and love to sample beer in various countries
so I have sampled a fairly large number of beers. I do admit the stout from Belgium was also divine.

A-Dark reddish/brown with virtually no head. What little foam there was, was tan in color, but dissipated almost immediately leaving only a very thin ring around the glass. A few very small bubbles visible at pour, but after a few seconds carbonation is not visible.
S-Sweet, fruity brandy like aroma with hint of oak. No discernible hop aroma.
T- Starts off sweet, malty with alcohol/brandy flavors dominating. Finishing with oak flavors and here comes the hops. Not so much hop flavor as definite hop bitterness. Nice warmth as it goes down.
M- Feels silky, almost syrupy at first, but the carbonation that was absent visually, now quickly reveals itself in the mouth releasing some of the flavors mentioned earlier along with that hop bitterness.
D- Very good Old Ale but most definitely not a session beer. I wish I had shared it with a friend (12oz too much for me). This is one to enjoy in small amounts on a cold winters night IMO.

Appearance- Rich dark cherry color, consistent and little to no head probably due to alcohol content
Smell- nice cherry smell, continues rich, the remainder of the scent but reminds me of dark fruits, and it smells sweet and deep. Can smell either brown sugar or molasses, when I tried to smell figs and the beer in short order, I could distinctly smell figs.
Taste- This tastes really wonderful, as I continued to drink it, the taste got stronger, deeper and better. Complex taste that has character at the start, sweetness in the middle, and solid finish. No taste is overpowering and no single taste dominates. As such, the strength of the flavor never overpowers your palate. For a beer with such a high alcohol content, this beer has a well rounded taste. As the beer warms in your glass the flavor only improves. Can taste dark cherry and figs/dates.
Mouthfeel- creamy feel in your mouth, sweet but not sugary, subtle tastes help this high alcohol content beer from having an overpowering feel while drinking it, and the finish is smooth and continues to develop the flavor rather than leaving any type of after-taste that could possibly ruin the experience.
Drinkability- This is a great beer that I could have a couple glasses of. Due to the complexity of the flavor, I'm not sure that more than 2 or 3 glasses would continue to be great, but the both glasses I enjoyed were great and the flavor got better the more in took over my palate.
Serving type: growler
