We may have to do a swap...
So I just bottled mine - final gravity was 1.007 which means the ABV is ~8.3%.
It settles and cleared considerably in secondary and is now a nice golden brown colour. There's a lot of ginger in the aroma but it is fairly subtle in the taste. The vanilla and phenols from the yeast come through a lot too. Taste wise it is quite sweet - caramel, dates, raisins, vanilla. Some booze and warmth of the finish.
Now of course this is just the observations at bottling, I expect after 30+ days of bottle conditioning it should become a lot more interesting.
