Poured from an OLD bottle into a schooner. No best before date, but the date on the bottle was 2007! Let see how this one cellared!
A - deep brown with immediate effervescence when poured into the glass. Small tan head that disappears fairly quickly. A bit of cloudiness/chunkiness - had to carefully remove it from the bottom of the bottle. Very obviously carbonated. Continues to roil at the top of the glass.
S - combination of a yeast plus caramel. Bit of a sweet and sour odor as well (dried fruit).
T - slightly bitter initial flavor overtaken by a huge burst of dark fruit. Some moderately dark malt flavors there, but the sweetness never dominates (or really comes for the forefront!) The tartness continues to work on the palate well after drinking it.
M - surprisingly light mouthfeel; it looked like it would be heavy, but with a combination of the significant carbonation and lower specific gravity it's positively surprising!
D - the alcohol is definitely there, just beneath the surface but it's nicely balanced by the carbonation and the tartness.
Overall this is a very tasty beer, but also a bit of a labor of love to finish strongly as it's a delicious beast. Very interesting comparison with the Jewbilation 1x series in that they look similar, but instead of a sweet malt bomb it's a finely balanced tart and enticing brew. Very nice.
