Poured from draft into a tulip glass during a sweetwater tap takeover. Pours a nice Raspberry amber color with a good two finger head. Smells of alcohol for sure and stone fruits. Taste like is smells and pours, almost get a candied apple note. I Definately get hints of berries and dark stone fruits.. the finish actually hides the alcohol bite very well! Mouthfeel is full and the lacing created a good ladder effect. Overall, very pleased and would love to age a couple of bottles!
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a deep ruby red color nice tan creamy head on it. Slight fruits dates and raisins maybe some alcohol. Boozy 6 months to a year might mellow this out fruit is there but not heavy mouthfeel is nice alchol stays on the tongue though might get another to cellar but not rushing out to do so.

Nice to see fresh bottles of the new Sweetwater anni. here in the triad.Poured into a snifter a deep rich ruby color with a thinner but well sustained light beige head atop.Caramel and banana stand out most in the nose along with strong sweet alcohol.Caramel and vanilla are the first flavors that hit than some drunken fruits,a mild toasted wheat note and some spicy/leafy hops make a pronounced presence in the finish.The 66 I.B.U.'s play a role but it's still a big alcoholic fruity bomb....wich isn't a bad thing at all. A real sipper with nice flavor combos,a worthy anni. beer.
