5/5  rDev +25%

A very long story to the acquisition of a case of this fine brew... I am on two bottles left (now 6 years+ in age) - I've been opening one every once in a while and just relished in the development of it's complexity and richness over these years. An incredible brew, and likely my favorite of the anniversary brews (as an Arizonan, I am proud to say that I have tasted each - Starting with the first - Decadence...). Anyway - a top-class Imperial Stout. HOWEVER... a little hint... If you pick up a bottle of Weyerbacher's Tiny (http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/392/56274/)... if you have a bottle... check the number of "stars" in the upper right of the label... Check the description under the title "TINY"... count the number of words in that description... Hmmm... I was told by a reliable source at Weyerbacher that this number (13 for those of you who don't have access) is no small coincidence...

Bottle pour at mrbubbler's tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and char aromas. Taste is much the same with char, dark fruit, and slight soy sauce flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is fairly drinkable but showing definite age at this point.
