Pours a deep garnet with a finger of sticky tan head that reduces but hangs around. Beautiful color when held to the light.
The nose is pungent with dark fruit, namely apricot and raisin, sticky sweet, a little cherry acidity. No noticeable hops. They could be there, just blended completely with the malt.
First taste is very grainy, sweet from the malt but with a dry character from the the honey. Braggots have a certain flavor that escapes my descriptive powers, but I'm trying my best. The combination of lots of malt and lots of honey is very unique. The grain has a sort-of cereal characteristic but is also very complex and rich. The honey doesn't impart a ton of flavor, but adds body and slight dryness.
Very thick body, sticky sweet aftertaste, but overall is a very enjoyable experience. If you've never had a braggot before, this is a good one to try. It's a unique type of brew and I'm excited to see a good commercial rendition of one.

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.
