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.

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. No freshness date but it was definitely bottled in 2011.

A- Pours a nearly opaque black color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains a bit before gradually relenting to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a sheer sheet of surface foam. Lacing is slick and non-resilient leaving splotches on the side of the glass.

S- Sweet sherry-like aroma with a nice dose of booze, raisin and honey.

T- Very smooth flavor for the ABV. Dark fruit, spice and moderately roasty malt make up the profile with some wine-like tannins. So drinkable it's nearly unbelievable. I'm thinking the age on it is making it this nice. There's the slightest bit of oxidation but it's actually a complimentary taste. Mild caramel aftertaste.

M- Semi-creamy but dry with medium carbonation and a robust body.

O- I had this when it first came out and liked it but, now that I examine it closely and it's been simmering in the bottle, I realize how terrific it is.

3.85/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a clear but very dark amber in color with some brown and ruby red highlights as well as some light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has three quarters of a finger of sudsy light beige head that quickly reduces to a medium amount of very thin film spread over the surface of the beer and a thin ring of large bubbles at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of honey with some lighter notes of toasted grains/malts, dark fruits, and just a touch of alcohol. Moderate amounts of sweetness in the aroma.

T: Moderate flavors of toasted and dark roasted malts with some sweeter grains and dark fruits (raisin and plum stand out). There is a fairly strong presence of honey contributing to the overall sweetness of the beer - very light notes of Belgian yeast spicy bitterness towards the finish.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Lightly smooth.

O: This has a flavor profile similar to a Belgian Strong Dark Ale with a touch of honey added to it...definitely an interesting brew and the alcohol is surprisingly well hidden (though starts to become a little more present as it warms). Pretty drinkable for the strength of the brew,

A: The beer is clear very dark amber in color. It poured with a three quarter finger high off white head consisting of large bubbles that gradually died down into a very large collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of dark fruits in the nose. Hints of alcohol become noticeable as the beer warms up.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of dark fruits and hints of hone along with some associated sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to resemble a Belgian Strong Dark Ale with some additional notes of honey flavors. This beer hides its alcohol exceptionally well considering its strength.
