3.9/5 rDev -8.7%
Draft at the Toronado, 1/3/2008.
Pretty subtle aroma: winey with slight notes of dark malt and brown sugar. Poured deep brown with reddish highlights. Good clarity. Almost no head, aside from a ring of off-white. Flavors of plums and raisins mixed with a strong sweetness. A sweet brown sugar flavor quickly became apparent and lingered well into the finish. Some alcohol flavor, but less than I'd expect for such a big, viscous beer. Nice bitterness in the background became apparent as sweetness eventually faded. Full-bodied, moderately low carbonation. Nice alcohol warmth in the slightly sicky finish.
Interesting beer. Just a hair shy of being excessively sticky, sweet and cloying. Despite all that, somehow, it worked.

Had on tap at the Firestone Night of the Ales. Pours a deep orange with a good inch of head that lasts to the bottom of the glass. Smells of raisins, figs, and has a good earthy quality. Tastes similar with fruity undertones and good carbonation. Could easily drink a pitcher of this but the distribution was limited. Overall a great beer but I do not think I will get a chance to try again due to limited availability.

Volunteered at the AHA conference in San Diego and this was being poured at Paxtons session. It was the first beer and it was amazing. It was served at around 9am on Friday morning and it would go really well with some pancakes or french toast. The appearance was darker and the smell had a lot malt to it. The taste blew me away. Very good mouth feel. Would definitely like to have this again with some food.

A: reddish brown, clear, minimal head
S: malty, not as sweet or as big as the taste (but it was cold at the time, prob needed to open up)
T: oh, yum. i tasted vanilla, almonds, brown sugar, and above all, roasted toffee flavors. all i could think about was DESSERT
M: spicy, warm
D: i could tell it was (is) high in alcohol, but still extremely pleasant
had this on tap at my work... my friend/coworker and i don't usually love the sweeter, darker, sugary-roasted-dessert-ey beers, but this beer instantly won our hearts, goshdarnit. we had the brilliant idea that 'saucer' was destined to be a beer float. we plopped a scoop of vanilla ice cream in our glass, and WOW. yes, you should ridicule us for this. and yes, it was phenomenal.
