Poured at The Good Life in Massapequa Park. Reddish brown hues and zero head. Aromas are anise, caramel, and spice. Flavors are in line, with an immense sweetness that tickles the palate all the way through. Anise really takes the lead, and each sip finishes dry. Medium mouthfeel, low carbonation. There are two things missing entirely: bitterness and alcohol (at least in flavor).
I sipped on this throughout the course of my meal (before, during, and after), which turned out to be a good tactic. This is a really gorgeous beer.
Serving type: on-tap

A - Pours a deep burgundy color with a thick toffee colored ring of lacing around the glass, mild carbonation.
S - Dark maple syrup, brown sugar, toffee, musty, oak, and some dark fruit and sweet molasses.
T - Some sweet dark tart fruit, oak, bourbon, vanilla, light smoky oak, and some cherry acidity. Initially I was getting some roasted toffee on the palate but that quickly faded away and was replaced with the acidic tart cherry notes.
M - Finish is very dry but because of the presence of some tart acidity the dry finish quickly turns to semi-dry, then disappears. Velvet consistency across the tongue, thick, viscous, and lip smacking sticky.
O - With the bottle being (3+) years old it's expected the flavors and aroma have been muted.
In it's current state, predominantly oak, tart fruit, and Bourbon. If anyone likes to cellar bottles and has one of these left, I wouldn't let it sit much longer.
