WOW! That’s it... My entire review is simply summed up as WOW! ...Oh that’s not enough characters :) okay I'll write more.

I got this beer out and let it warm for an hour on the counter. Served in my snifter glass.

Appearance: This is a very noble auburn brown color with a nice 2 finger, solid/tight creamy off-white head. The lacing is impressively heavy. There was an amazing stream of carbonation rising from the middle of the glass that kept feeding the head, which remained frothy through the duration of the beer.

Smell: From the moment I cracked the bottle open I got a huge burst of aroma; exceptional! There was an instant onslaught of toasted malts and brown sugar. Browned butter and baked caramel fill the nose as well. There is also a brilliant bouquet of fruity flavors include but not limited to grapes, plums and cherries.

Taste: Toasted sweetness galore! Marvelous! As in the aroma, the taste has a strong toasted malt presence. Lots of plums and dark fruits parallel the buttery, sugars; but it is not cloyingly sweet! There is a very mild dryness/bitterness coming from a *very* reserved hop presence and an ABV that you would never know was over 12% through the taste. At the bottom of the glass, it'll catch up to you. :) There is also a slightly woody character, similar to a Woodford Reserve Bourbon. This beer is magnificently balanced and a true work of art!

Mouthfeel: Would I be gushing to call this divine? Every swallow begged for the next sip. The mouthfeel is remarkably smooth with a slick center and slightly crisp edge. The aftertaste reveals a hint of bitter dryness that is just the nudge I needed to put the glass to my lips again. OOPS; now that ABV is making itself known!

Drinkability: This is defiantly a nightcap beer. On shear smell, taste and feel I'd give it a 5; but these big beers are far from sessionable. So consider this one a sipping beer and finish the night with it. I highly recommend! Well-done Weyerbacher!

Hope this is helpful.
Cheers!
