Bottle (2010)

The Bruery
Placentia, CA

(Aged for 3 years)

Muddy brown and very dark ambers. Small amount of visible carbonation--just a small ring of tiny bubbles near the edges of the glass. Leaves the glass oily.

Sweet aroma of melted sugars and caramels. Sticky toffee pudding along with a hint of bourbon barrel. The sweetest aroma of any of the anniversary flight beers.

The flavor follows the aroma. This is, fairly significantly, the sweetest of the Bruery anniversary flight. Melted Sugar Daddy caramel candies, some butterscotch, a bit of bourbon barrel, and just a tiny bit of chocolate muffin. Tasty.

Near full in body with low carbonation.

Very tasty, but I don't think this one has anywhere left to improve.

Tried this at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank. The beer is retired but they had an aged keg.

It was a little murky looking with a caramel color and a head that couldn't wait to vanish.

Smell is very winey. Strong.

Interesting flavors of malty grain and hot booze.

Nice heavy mouthfeel that made this a slow sipper.

Glad I tried it and fun to share with friends, but I never even considered ordering another.
