Delirium Nocturnum

I’ve been saving this one for a special occasion, and New Year’s Eve is as good as any. Instead of bubbly champagne, bubbly beer.
This one is dark and opaque, with a substantial head that hangs around all the way down the glass.
Smells sort of winey, but more robust, perhaps some wet leaves lurking.
Taste is a bit of tartness, with some plum or prune. Something else is there that I can’t quite put my finger on. There’s also a slightest bit of an alcoholic warming effect as it goes down, but not so overpowering that I couldn’t drink the magnum myself.
A great way to ring in the New Year.
