    Pours clear with an eighth inch or so off deep tan foam. Retention is fleeting leaving no traces of it's short lived existence. Surprisingly effervescent.

    Aroma is rich molasses, sweet brown sugar, dark fruits, ideas of syrup. Alcohol and cherries are mildly represented. Definitely sweet.

    Taste is really sweet. Dark fruits, molasses, and brown sugar dominate the flavors. Dark fruits are mainly pointed at raisins and prunes.

    Big body that is thick, almost syrupy, with light end of medium carbonation. Dries the palate.

    This isn't going to go down fast. The alcohol burns from the back of the throat all the way down to the end. You could time it with a stop watch. A sipper that is sweet (maybe too much) that should be an occasional friend. Enjoy!
