I just picked up a bottle of this.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle at about 60F.

Tastes very heavily of dried/dark fruit. Raisiny/plumb. Also some cinnamon and nutmeg and vanilla in the finish. I'm also picking up some coffee/roasty flavors too. Maltiness is reminescent of a Scottish Ale. I like a good malty beer on a cold day (or a warm one for that matter). This is very tasty.

Mine had a strange, minty or wintergreeny flavor.

I didn't hate it, but glad I only picked up a 12oz 'er.
