12oz. bottle poured into a snifter
A- not much to look at. A murky ruby color with a think khaki head that dissipates quick. No lacing.
S- Let the joy begin. Big, huge, aromatic notes of candy sugar, dark fruits, caramel with a hint of cocoa and coffee.
T- Deep, sugary sweet with notes of dark fruit that just pummel your tongue. Hints of coffee, cocoa, brown sugar, caramel, and maybe some anise. A spicy warming alcohol finishes it off.
M- thick, chewy, with a tight carbonation that cuts the sweetness just a bit.
O- Fantastic. I love old ales, and while Founders Curmudgeon may be the pinnacle for me, this isn't all that far behind.
