750mL poured into a wine glass
A: Poured a murky brown with a 2 finger khaki head that dissipate quickly. Not much lacing after each sip but initial pour looks beautiful.
S: Strong belgian yeast smell with dark fruits, thinking figs, prunes, raisins etc. when smelled from the bottle. Once poured, bourbon smell masks the dark fruit smells. Overall a great smell for the style.
T: When drank at colder temps, the bourbon and dark fruit taste is very smooth and warming. Lots of bourbon up front with hints of toffee, caramel, and vanilla. As this beer warms, it becomes more hot and sweet.
M: Well bodied and carbonated. As it warms, booziness begins to set in.
O: Overall, an excellent beer from the Bruery. Great concept of an old style and the barrel aging process gave this beer another dimension. Not an everyday drinker but definitely a very good beer.

Bottle picked up locally. enjoyed from a bruery snifter.
a - wow...that's SOME wax. spent a good 5 minutes working it off...but worth the effort. beer poured dark purple brown with a nice foamy almost belgian looking head that left a thick skin that hung out. glistens.
s - ZING! smells perfect. deep rich complex dark fruit and leather. booze soaked wood. candied sweetness. these anniversary beers really make me appreciate old ales. really tows the line of strong ale.
t - oh my. the flavor exceeds the awesomeness of the nose. this beer is flat out perfect. deep dark plums grapes figs, perfectly ripe...no maybe just teetering on overripe and juicy. thick and rich.
m - lush. abv is masked magically
o - this is a masterpiece. big and bold and makes no apologies. reminds me of BA 2TD or even Bells BA Batch 9k.
