2012 10th Anniversary bottle. 29% ABV. Poured in the Riedel designed Utopias glass. First tasting. I may come back and modify my review each year since I plan on drinking 2 oz each year on my birthday (Nov 18). Depends on how much it changes.
Pours a mahogany caramel color with no head. The nose is almost like amaretto and brandy together. Chocolate covered cherries, almonds, maple, pecans, definite booze heat (obviously), caramel, molasses and some slight red grape notes. The taste is very sweet. Maple, almond, oak, cherry, chocolate, booze, pecans, caramel and molasses. It is syrupy, sticky, sweet, very hot. It is definitely a lot different than a beer. It kind of deserves its own classification. It is fermented like beer but it is like drinking a liquor like cognac or brandy. I love it but I don't know if I can call it a favorite beer. Maybe my favorite liqueur...
