12 oz bottle traded with SonofaLime back in November of 2011. I poured this one into my CCB snifter a little at a time after it warmed up a bit.
Appearance: A very nice mahogany with a film of bubbles around the edge and a bowling ball swirl of effervescence on the liquid.
Smell: Honey is the primary scent. A strong malty presence backs this up with some booze. I do not get "spices" as might be expected with the style.
Taste: A nice honey mixes with alcohol soaked raisins and rich malts. Even after a year and a half age on this bottle the alcohol is strong but does not burn, at all. Even with the pervading honey flavor the resulting sweetness is not at all cloying. I get a sense of chocolate and some toast from the malts. All in all, really nice.
Mouthfeel: A thick sticky brew, this one lingers so long on the palette. The body is thickish while the carbonation is lower.
Overall: I can see why this brew won gold at GABF 2011. A very complex and slow sipper of a beer. I would love to get hold of this one again.

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.
