Served in a tulip at the Shack in Sac.
A - Dark mahogany with 2 fingers of mocha colored head. Lacing was beautiful and head had good retention. Very nice.
S/T - Toffee-like malts with initial and lasting woody-earthy hop bitterness. Aroma malts are faint to none. Would like to have had more aroma and flavor malts in the quaff.
M - Slightly malt dominated with a full-body. Carbonation was moderately low and the beer was slightly warming.
D - Would really have liked less bittering hops and a more complex maltiness. Increased age (2+ years) could provide some necessary oxidation and desired sherry notes. Overall not bad, but likely to skip next time.
Serving type: on-tap

3.81/5 rDev -8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance - The beer was a dark copper color with a fluffy off-white head crowning the snifter. Lacing followed the sides of the glass.
Smell - The malts dominated the smell with notes of fresh bread and banana hovering in the background.
Taste - On the initiate taste, the bitterness of chocolate and alcohol strikes me. Caramel makes a brief appearance. Oaky notes and vanilla float in toward the back, leaving a dry woody impression.
Mouthfeel -Carbonation is modest with few warming qualities despite the ABV. Clearly the alcohol is well masked.
Overall - I aged this one for quite a while and must state that I am not sure the waiting was worth it.
