Poured into a Lucifer snifter.

Pours the clear garnet color of a Quadrupel, with a moderate bubbly tan head. Good retention, medium lacing. Smells strongly of honey, and I like it. Drinks sweet with hints of dark bitterness. Definite notes of honey and yeast.

The finish is mildly tannic, and the booze is present. Richness of dark fruit and dried peel --- frankly, this reminds me of Rochefort 10, say what you may! Either my palate is shit, or this beer is way underrated. I read some reviews and the major complaints are off-putting booziness and unwanted esters. Classic "fermentation gone wrong"? Well, I don't get any of it. In my very humble opinion, except for 6, 8, and 10, this is the only beer I have had that evokes similar feelings as Rochefort does!

4, 4, 4.5, 4, 4.5

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.
