A blended beer, this was in the holiday jewbelation pack several years ago, which also came with a glass that broke in my dishwasher today. The beer was cracked in its honor.

LOOK: A dark amber brown brew with a tan head with good retention. This beer coats the glass like a good whiskey or scotch.

SMELL: Big aroma! Loads of malt, toffee, rye, wood and fruit. Sugary, sweet, a bit boozy, I've been waiting to try this one for a while.

TASTE: Huge flavors here as well of vinous grape, raisin and chocolate. Carries some oxidized notes of tobacco, leather and dark soy. Hop bitterness is loose and a bit acidic on the edges, or could be from the barrel. There is a nice chocolate and spice note from the large amount of malt in the rye whiskey barrels.

FEEL: Smooth, creamy and well carbonated. This has a velvety feel and is quite satisfying.

OVERALL: A rare treat with great flavor and complexity. Reminds me of a lost abbey or even utopias in the aroma and taste. Alot going on!
