I really didn't know what to expect from this brew or this style in general. I have had other braggots but have not been impressed by any that come to mind. I will not forget this one.

Pours with a deep very dark brown body that is almost black. Head is a biscuity brown foamy cream that fades in just a couple of minutes.

Nose is full of complex sweet malty goodness. Honey, short bread and sugar cookies come quickly to mind. A soft hint of spice is also noticeable. Very attractive nose.

With first sip you imediatly see how well the honey plays in the flavor profile of this beer. The mead feel really comes through nicely. So often this style is to thick, and while this one thick it is very well balanced. The body had a consistant sweetness with a bready, slightly spicy backbone.

Mouthfeel is rich and zesty. I could drink this brew quite often. I wish I had picked up more.

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.
