3.43/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: 12oz twist top bottle with no bottling or best by date. Pours red with a thin brown head.

Smell: Malts, alcohol, caramel, and raisins. Lots of malt in the nose.

Taste: Malts, alcohol, apples, lemon and lime tartness. A very different taste than I am used to from a beer.

Mouthfeel: As thick as water, and carbonated. The mouth is left feeling clean.

Drinkability: I am not sure about this one. The tartness at the end is almost wine like. A very unique beer, like nothing I have tasted before. This is certainly a good beer, but I would only want it on a special occasion, and not as a fridge regular. Congratulations to Shiner on 100 years.

This 1 has been in the cellar for a couple years.

Pours a slightly hazy dark amber brown with a quarter inch khaki foamy head that dissipates into a thin film.

Melanoidin, deeply caramelized malt, forms the initial aroma. Very buttery, nutty, toffee notes blend with a sherry-like dark fruit note that is reminiscent of black cherries.

Flavor reveals dark fruit notes of plum and cherry, along with a hint of sherry. Prunes and raisins combine with deeply toasted caramel malt and roasted nuts. There's a hint of cardboard due to oxidation.

Body is a touch full, with low carbonation and slight alcohol warmth.

This has been interesting. Aged quite well. Probably close to being too old.
