A friend brought this back after a trip to Michigan. This review is of the 2011 version, served at about 55 degrees.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an oversized snifter. Pours a deep mahogany brown, with a minimal might tan head. Moderate cloudniess in the beer gives it a bit of a murky quality; otherwise, it is the color of cola.
The aroma is intense and boozy, with tons of burnt toffee, malt and dark cherry. I don't quite get the burnt marshmellow advertised on the bottle, but there is a burnt quality to the brew.
The taste is malty, boozy, yeasty and strong, with dark fruit, caramel and burnt sugar. This is an intensely flavorful beer that demands it be sipped. A bit peaty and earthy, there's tremendous depth to this ale. Chocolate notes begin to come out the warmer it gets.
Full bodied with low bitterness, the brew has the feel of heavy creme it is so thick. There's a bit of fruity tang in the finish that balances out the ale nicely.
This is a slow sipper of a beer, meant to be enjoyed like one would enjoy a sherry, port or cognac, perfect for a cold winter day. You don't come across many olde ales that are as "English" as this; a true treat!
