The pour was a murky dark brown with a small (less than 1 finger) off white fizzy head that dissipated rapidly leaving behind a very thin film and small collar which did allow for some fair spotty streaks of lacing.
The aroma was of a dark bread malt and a doughy yeast with notes of toffee, honey, dark fruit (plums and raisins) and a mild alcohol tinge.
The taste was sweet and malty with hints of toffee and honey from the start with the finish being about the same but with a touch of dark fruit, a strong yeast presence and a moderate dose of alcohol at the end. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow with a nice fruity sweetness left on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was just short of medium in body with a mild syrupy texture and a nice strong carbonation.
Overall a really nice tasting Strong Ale with a superb drinkability...
