750ml Bottle from Wegmans Dewitt NY- 2012 edition - $9

Appearance – Brown colour with an above average size fizzy beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell – Malts, caramel, chocolate, dark fruits

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and a bit of chocolate. There is also some raisins/plums and a peppery spice mix,

Overall – Had some hints of a barley wine mixed in.. maybe due to the age of the bottle. Either way, I really enjoyed this one. It was sweet but not over the top and the booze is incredibly well hidden. This beer can compete with belgian quads for sure.
