Thanks to AndrewK for sharing this one at his tasting.

2013 vintage.

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.

12oz bottke into a matching hotd 20th anniversary wine glass. The brew appears a murkey brown color with less than a dozen bubbles that get agitated towards the surface and break making the brew look still. Clear alcohol legs droop down the wall of the glass.

The aroma is very much quad-like with a sweet maltiness like raisins blended with molasses. A bit of green yeastiness is present with more dark fruity alcohol coming out with every whiff. A little earthen or dusty with chocolate and brandy-like booze and oak. Faint vanilla and caramel aspect with almost a milk chocolate character emerges as it gets warm.

The taste is boozy but equally sweet. Raisins and chocolate immediately come to mind blended with vinous brandy booze quality and brown sugar. Faint licorice notes mingle with old oak barrel thats slightly earthen and musty. Leather really becomes pronounced as it warms up with the booze feeling solvent with increasing large sips. Once it goes beyond ideal temperature, some herbal hops are felt mixing with that previously mentioned green yeastiness.

This is a medium to fuller bodied brew that despite having sediment in the bottle is nearly completely still. It is a hell of an awesome sipper that is deeply complex and enjoyable with suggestions of barrel aging and plenty of booze contrasted by residual sweetness. However, its flatness is a bit disappointing. Just even a little carbonation would have helped assist the feel and move the flavors across the palate a little better. Initial impression almost seems like this is an alcoholic version of a tootsie rool. It is very nice. However, it has some green yeasty accents to it that are a little distracting. If some extended aging helps clean this brew up and give it just a little carb, we are looking at a brew with serious potential to be a top favorite in the style. However, this is rated as-is.

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.

On tap at the HotD 20th.

Murk, hazy barrel aged goodness, the nose is full of caramel, toffee, brandy, raisins, grapes, vinous barreled yumminess. The palate is a blend of sweet toffee, caramel, maple, bourbon and brandy vanilla sweetness and booziness, this beer is full bodied and a boozy, yummy treat. Yum
