2006 vintage in an 11.2 oz. bottle
A. Pours a hazy brown with tons of large yeast clumps in suspension with a two and a half finger fairly large bubble head that leaves only a few clumps of residual lacing as it receeds.
S. Caramel malt with lots of dark fruit character - figs and raisins largely. Some sweet breadiness and butter there as well. Some fruity banana ester sweetness in there as well.
T. Dark fruits with notes of caramel, dark roasted notes, and a touch of the banana that comes through in the smell.
M. Fills the mouth with lots of large bubbles - more carbonated than I'd like.
D. Pleasant and complex. As it warms the carbonation dies down a bit and complexities come out on the nose and on the tongue. Quite good.
