New York

4.33/5  rDev +12.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Smith 12 oz. nonic.

Appearance: Mostly like a really dark amber with good, mildly mocha-colored lacing.

Smell: Honey all over the place, but it never becomes overly bouquet-like (and if it does, it becomes a good sense of sentimentality) or cloying to the nose. Some dark fruits makes their way in also, along with a bit of char and burn, which seems to lessen the sweetness.

Taste: A mouthful of bees? Eating a honeycomb? Not so much, but it seems to me, as not an expect, that the honey used here is top notch. Of course I may be wrong, but what makes me think this mostly is the extremely long finish, which is also what I remember when I brewed my first beer with honey. There are, also, some good spices here. I can't pick all of them out, but they're present, welcoming, and not so complex that they're taking away from what I think is the point of the brew. There's a long bouquet, and again, the flowers are extremely present, which makes sense, considering what bees do, minus the sting.

Mouthfeel: Keeps it non-cloying with the honey and alcohol content, which is what you should probably believe is a good thing considering all of the factors. Carbonation's pretty smooth and at-the-last-second swallow prickly, slightly, in a good way.

Drinkability: Another top notch brew from Weyerbacher. I know I'm not the only one who looks forward to the anniversary releases, and this was no different. A long sipper on the porch in summer is the way to go with this. Enough balance from the hops and char to not make it too sweet, but the honey almost reaches otherwordly qualities on the taste buds -- not quite transcendent, but it's close.

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.
