3.73/5 rDev +8.7%
This is a 2011 that got lost in the cellar, so...
Pours a clear deep brown with copper highlights and minimal cream head.
Brown sugar, ginger, treacle, and dark cherries form the aroma. Sweetness dominates.
Flavor reveals deeply caramelized malt, almost toffee-like, contrasted by tart cherries at the base. The finish is fairly bitter. Notes of sharp prunes and candied dates add complexity.
Body is a touch light, with moderate carbonation and light alcohol warmth.
This beer has held up well. Any spice character is gone, but the malt profile has nice estery complexity. Still a bit hot.

Pours a clear amber color with a thick, fluffy white head with very good retention, lots of sticky lace throughout the beer.
The scent is of sweet bready malt and lots of spice.
The taste is of toasted bread, caramel, some dark fruits, nutmeg and some cinnamon.
Medium body, smooth and creamy, moderate carbonation.
This was a pretty nice beer, lots of flavor and well balanced as the alcohol is pretty much undetectable.
