Review #600. 10th Anniversary Edition served in the accompanying Riedel glass.
A: Pours completely still. Clear brown in color with some ruby highlights intertwined. Some massive legs and stick draping along the side of the glass.
S: Very hot and boozy up front. Overt alcohol and spirits with some hotness to it. Underneath that you get some maple sweetness and burnt sugar. Some caramel and toffee notes are present as well. Dark fruit complexities show themselves as well when it starts to hit room temp.
T: Caramel sweetness with a ton of vanilla. Oak with a great malty backbone. The alcohol doesn't compete with the complexities of this beer even though it's over 27%. Heat on the finish with a mix of toffee, roasted figs and raisins.
M: Incredibly smooth and rich with a warming finish. Devoid of carbonation with a slightly syrupy mouthfeel.
O: This is the pinnacle of sipping beers. Sweet, complex and warming. This is a beer I will savor for a long time.
