Large shared bottle.
Sweet appealing aroma with hints of whisky, wood, toffee and Dark dried fruits.
Flavor is overly boozy, unless you are hoping for lots of whisky. Nonetheless, quite pleasing, somewhat complex, and only lightly hot.
Moderately sweet.

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.

A: Poured into a snifter to a deep brown, nearly black beer topped by a half finger of dense light tan head that fades to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of toffee, dark fruits, vanilla, and caramel
T: Taste is toffee, vanilla, a little spice, caramel, dark fruits, a little oak and some toasted bread. Swallow is rye whiskey, molasses, caramel, vanilla and some lingering dark fruits.
M: Big and full on the palate with soft carbonation and a drying finish from the alcohol.
O: This is big sweet and boozy. The flavors are great and the complexity is definitely there. This is another great variant to Sucre. Not too hot either so it drinks pretty well for the ABV.
