a deep amber pour, a finger of off-white head which quickly dissipated. smells of barley, caramel, brown sugar, lots of sweet grains. a bitter-sweet malty flavor with a huge alcohol kick. slight roasted flavors give off nutty like taste, mixed with what seems like pure barley juice. it feels like there's rye in here as well - almost a chocolatey flavor. full body with low carbonation.. somehow it feels a bit watered down for its strength, which makes it easy to drink - and dangerous.

there is an overall sense of booze in this beer, which is a bit intimidating. the taste is much bitter than the aroma given off by the sweet sugars of the grains. the mouthfeel wasn't all there.. for an anniversary beer, this is kind of a disappointment. otter creek is capable of much more, i think.
