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.
