Thanks to AndrewK for sharing this one at his tasting.
Pours a clear dark honey brown with a foamy tan head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, dark fruit, sherry, wood, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with toffee, dark fruit, wood, and alcohol flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with fantastic aromas and tasty but boozy flavors.

On tap during the 20th anniversary event at the tasting room.
The beer pours a somewhat cloudy, murky brown color with fairly decent head retention and lacing. The nose is impressive in this beer, right off the bat, especially if you happen to like the aroma of brandy. That's what I noticed right off, but there was also considerable milk chocolate, vanilla, and a hint of licorice. The beer smells as if it will be fairly boozy (not exactly a surprise, given the 13% abv.), but in fact, the alcohol is very well integrated into the flavor profile, and it really doesn't come off as a 13% abv. beer. Otherwise, the flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely in this moderately sweet beer, and the mouthfeel was smooth, soft and actually fairly creamy. Seemed like there was something of a cherry chocolate flavor to this beer, but that may have just been the vanilla interplaying with the licorice and chocolate.
This is entirely too easy a beer to drink, frankly. Otherwise, it's really quite delicious.
