This beer pours a dark copper and amber color with hints of red. The aroma is sweet caramel malt, with the caramel being slightly burnt. There is also some dark, dried fruit. The taste follows the aromas with the deep caramel, dried fruit and alcohol merging into a fruitcake like effect. This is quite a sweet beer with an almost sherry like quality developing as it warms. 7.8% ABV.
The Capital Brewery is out of Middleton, Wisconsin.
