2009 Vintage

Cracked the cap on this with a vigorous pssshhhh. Huge biscuit and honey malts with fruit cake, juicy cherry, and plums. Demererra sugar and honey sweetness are prominent. No alcohol presence in this, and a nice thick chewy mouthfeel. Intense flavors that make for a delicious dessert, but glad I had someone to share the bomber with, as the sweetness could become a bit too much after 12 ounces.

(Had at the Brewpub. Listed as: Rye Barrel Aged Olde Gnarly Wine).

Hazy, medium-brown with an off-white head. Minimal carbonation. No head at all when served.

Rye bread, camomille tea, kirsch, pipe tobacco, molasses.

Dense on the palate with pipe tobacco, rye, mocha and milk chocolate, kirsch and orange marmalade.

Rich, creamy texture that carries on the palate.

Rich, robust, intense and very dense. Deep full flavor and a very long finish.
