750ml into snifter.

A: Pours a deep mahogany with a finger of creamy tan head that faded into a thick and lasting collar.
S: Rich and complex notes of leather, tobacco, candied orange rind, sticky hop resin, honey, candied dates, and powdery chocolate.
T: Not as decadent as the nose let on. I get notes of leafy tobacco, wood, candied orange and peat, with hints of chocolate, dates, red grape, and leather. The finish is lightly bitter with a touch of cola and anise, and the aftertaste has lingering honey, butterscotch, and hop resin.
M: More carbonation, fizzy carbonation, than I expected. I definitely wish the bubbles were smoother. The carb creates more texture on the mouthfeel than I remember the 12oz bottles having. This isn’t as smooth, velvety, creamy, soft, or full as I remember, but once some of the carb burns off it’s a bit more drinkable. Medium-full body that definitely could have been smoother.
O: Good but strangely not as good as how I remember the yearly release being. The carbonation was definitely distracting, but maybe it was better fresh.
