4.4/5 rDev +14.6%
Pours a two-finger off-white head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Cloudy amber color, some yeast left in bottle. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Sweet almost syrupy nose and flavor is sweet toffee, not cloying, high ABV is hidden. Pricey at $11.99 for a 330ml bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma. Brewed Jul 2012.

Thanks to Phil for sending me this in a trade!
Poured deep maple with a very slight trail of bubbles. Perfectly clear, the light produces a brilliant deep amber glow. Lots of caramel and toffee here. Very nicely balanced sweetness that lasts the entire sip followed by an earthy bitterness. Low carbonation works for this sipper. Thick and chewy body. Quite an awesome beer indeed!

3.71/5 rDev -3.4%
The colour is amber (25 EBC), the liquid is clear. The two finger head is compact and off-white; it sinks very slowly leaving some lacing on the glass.
The smell is sweet and a bit sour. Some bitterness, raisins, ripe apples, green plants, minerals, and smooth alcohol. It is quite strong, although I have expected even more sweetness.
The taste is very, very sweet. Apple juice, minerals, ripe red fruits and some biscuits. Medium to full body. The aftertaste is also sweet with raisins and dried fruits, minerals and chalk. The long finish is sweet with lots of toffee.
The carbonation is strong, the small bubbles are long-lasting. The liquid is thick and sticky, yet a bit dry.
There is almost no alcohol in the taste which is impressive. There are lots of mineral-chalk in this one, a bit too much I think.

A little over two years old, 11.2 oz. bottle filled to within a mm of the cap.
a: Slightly hazy golden amber; poured a small, big bubbled head.
s: Boozy raisins and plums and molasses; sherry and a hint of oxidation; sugary toffee. Very enticing.
t: Bit of a let down from the smell. Lots more sugar than fruit. A little raisin flavor, tons of sugary sherry, and some oxidation.
m: Big and syrupy with gentle carbonation.
o: The label says this can age for 25 years. Wouldn't this just get sweeter and sweeter over time? Anyway, this was interesting to try but I think I would have preferred a fresher bottle with a stronger hop presence.
