Poured into a snifter from a 750ml bottle.

Pours a murky and muddy mahogany brown with some honey colored hues. There is a thin off-white head that forms and quickly recedes down to a thing ring around the glass.

The aroma is very complex. Nice notes of molasses and vanilla mixed in together. Slight whiskey heat in the nose but surprisingly not boozy. Dates, slight prune notes and other assorted ripened dark fruits. Quite appealing.

Flavor starts off with nice rich dark fruit notes. Molasses and vanilla play along and compliment the fruit notes with some nice slight rye whiskey notes that are sweet and slightly spicy. At cellar temperature this brew is perfect. The dark fruit notes are very intense and mouth coating. Complex notes of vanilla spice mixed in with molasses and strong toffee make this beer delicious. Oily and viscous with some nice light carbonation that shows up but is unassuming.

2014 Vintage

Appearance: Slightly cloudy dark-brown with a modest sized light-beige head that dissipated fairly quickly. The look is on par with the other Anniversary beers.

Smell: Brown sugar, dark fruit notes (raisins and prunes), moderate whiskey notes, and mild toffee notes. Nice nose on this beer.

Taste: Moderate Whiskey notes, fruity sherry notes, raisins/prunes, some brown sugar, moderate spicy rye notes and mild oak notes. The rye Whiskey bal-aged Anniversary beesr finish drier and less sweet than the bourbon bal-aged versions of the Anniversary beers. This one is no exception with a dry spicy feel left at the very end. I would almost say Bull&*^% regarding the listed 16.3% ABV, alcohol is not present in the taste profile but I can tell it's one of those beers you could drink way too fast and get kicked in the head. Very mild alcohol presence, great for the ABV.

Mouth-feel: Medium-bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation.

Overall: The rye whiskey and Brandy bal-aged Anniversary beers take top billing for me. This is a fine beer with a good tasting and complex taste profile.
