This is a beer to celebrate the 24th anniversary of Drakes. The wort is actually the second runnings from the wort they are preparing for their 25th anniversary! Normally second runnings mean thin-bodied session beers, not in this case!

Appearance: murky amber color with a wispy white head.

Smell: slightly sweet malty nose with a hint of booziness.

Taste: a quick flash of sweetness, a little malt, and then a dry finish with a hint of hops.

Overall: this is a pretty good beer, but I certainly hope I live another year because if this is a hint of things to come for next year and this beer gets some interesting barrel aging I think it will be something people remember.

Served in a footed glass at Ale Arsenal.

No head. Dark, murky brown. Smells like molasses. The taste is sour, malty, and strong. Body is thinnish and not too bad. This is not a great beer, but it's an interesting one. Would probably not sample again.
