Poured into a goblet.
3.25 A: Lightly hazed deep amber color. One and a half fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is lacking, but it's to be expected from such a big beer. No lacing either.
3.5 S: This is full of plum and figs foremost. Toasty malts with strong caramel components and notes of gingerbread. Something strange to me which must be the gooseberries. Peppery spiciness with hints of clove. A bit of booze, which is well hidden overall.
3.75 T: Taste is like the nose, except that the gooseberry portion is more prominent. Plum, figs, and grape finish up the fruits. Toasty, caramel, and bready malts. Peppery spice. Molasses and deep neutral maltiness.
3.75 M: Big, heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and smooth. Well done here.
3.75 D: It's a pretty good beer, but it's a little more standard than the usual Bruery beer. Definitely worth a try

bottle picked up locally cause i'm a sucker for this series and at this point, why start skipping them? enjoyed from a 5 oz brewery taster...stemless snifter glass.
a - a semi transparent mahogany brown with a thin bubbly head that bubbles away no real lace to speak of.
s - nose is sweet. dark berry and just sweetness. smells like a lot of the american takes on a BSDA...missing the lush creaminess of the classics.
t - definitely sweet...as the nose suggested. hints of brown sugar behind some dark fruit and berry.
m - extraordinarily thin. lacking the creaminess and body that a good BSDA needs.
o - overall, the bruery makes some amazing beers, and they also make lots of meh beers...because they make SO many different beers. there hasn't really been a superstar yet in this series and it makes sense since these are all one offs. i doubt time will do magic on this one, hopefully tame down the sweetness....all in all for some dumb reason i feel the need to try all of these and the BA versions (some of those are pretty solid) and every time i consider stopping and then just go for the tick. oh well, if you aren't ticking or collecting the set, i'd pass on this beer. not a drain pour...but that's about all i can say about it.
