Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

To commemorate our 3rd year anniversary we brewed this hearty wheat barley wine with piloncillo sugar and aged it for 4 months in Appleton rum casks. The result is something special; layers of caramel, molasses, toasted malt, oak and warmth. Cheers!

Poured from a bottle into a snifter glass
pour is no head and very little lacing if any
reddish brown in color
smell is a little boozy
taste is not nearly as boozy as the smell more smooth with
hint of booze on the back end
little bit of fruit i sense from the appleton rum barrel
get a little caramel and sweetness
overall a nice drink once it warms up i liked it better more of the flavors came out

Huge thanks to Robbie for this bottle. Bottles Jan 2013. Poured in to snifter.

A - Medium translucent amber colour with almost no head.

S - Sweet rum and toasted oak with dark caramel, toffee, raisin and spice aromas.

T - Sweet rum, toasted oak and a light coconut presence up front. Mid-palate is where the base beer shows up, adding sweet caramel, toffee and raisins. Finish is spiced rum. Warming alcohol throughout.

M - Medium body, almost full bodied at times. Light carbonation.
