3/5  rDev -22.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a De Struise chalice. Bottled 4/14/11.

Appearance - Dark brown with some reddish notes. Medium off-white head that settles to some wispy foam nicely. Looks pretty good.

Smell - Honey and malt. Like an unfermented fresh malt syrup aroma. Some phenolic notes. Cloves and light banana.

Taste - Honey is strong. The malt is better incorporated, but it still tastes like a shot of malt syrup has been poured into this after fermentation. Sweet from the honey and malt. Caramel to the extreme. Earthy, though, which balances it nicely. Spicy finish.

Mouthfeel - Sweet and chewy, then immediately dry. The flavors drop off leaving a bitter off flavor that is rather unpleasant. The honey persists, though.

Overall - I don't drink a lot of braggots, but if they all finish like this, then I won't be drinking many more. Tough to review to style when I've only had a couple, but the off flavors in the dry finish aren't fun.

3.91/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a burnt caramel color capped by a modest tan head; a handful of dots lace the glass

Smell: Even after three years, the alcohol is still very present in the aroma, wafting upwards with dark fruit, banana and some spice cake tones

Taste: Rum-soaked dark fruit, up front, with banana and fig flavors dominant; treacle flavors build in the middle, but the finish is tannic and dry, despite the sweetness that lingers

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with low to moderate carbonation; considerable warmth in the gullet

Overall: I have been curious about this beer for a while, not only due to the style but I wanted to see how it aged; the flavors turned out to be layered and complex and the aging does this beer a good turn

Thanks, justanewby, for the opportunity

I've never had an Anniversary beer from Weyerbacher that I didn't think was of the highest quality. Big fan of this brewery, even though I think there year-round options could use some work. Nice dark color ale with aromas of sweet malts, mild hops and honey. And, it comes together in the taste. Flavors are right now. The only criticism I could possible offer is it may be too sweet. It's works, though. Again, there's the honey - and I'm a sucker for dark ales anyway. Mouthfeel is almost perfect. Super smooth and creamy. Velvety. Great brew - highly recommended.
