750 ml bottle, 11/13/13 etched on the bottle so I'll assume that's the bottled on date. Served in a DFH Signature glass, the beer pours a reddish/copper color with about a half inch light tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like dark fruit (plums, berries), peppery spice, cloves, and some toffee. It tastes like dark fruit (plums, cherries), clove, peppery spice, caramel, tart berries and a sweet spiciness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit coating and is well carbonated. I thought this was a good brew, definitely worth a try. $10.99 a bottle.

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.
