11.2 fl. oz. bottle into brand new tulip glass. 2010 vintage. cant really make out the lot coding here.
A: very dark brown. this beer looks silky. hazed body. head is very tightly bubbled. retention is good, not great. unfortunately, not much lacing.
S: super fruity. red grapes. dark, very ripe figs. chestnuts. super sweet brown sugar. no booze, but even some bourbon-like aromas.
T: pretty fucking complex. things start vinous. a combination of rich red wine and a rich cordial. something like an Italian amaretto similar to Disaronno. coffee notes. woody. sweet sugars. gets tangy towards the finish. finishes even more oaky/vanilla/meaty than it started.
M: a relatively mild carbonization. definitely full-bodied.
D: big and complex, while maintaining a serious amount of smoothness. pretty much everything you would want in a quad. not sure what this stuff tastes like fresh out of the gate, but a 2+ year old vintage is very tasty. if I had to guess, more age would just bring forward even more vinous notes that I detected when drinking this brew. definitely worth picking up if you are a fan of the style.
