A bunch of numbers are on the bottle, but there are a few separate ones that read "11 2013", so I assume that means drink by November. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.
Appearance: A hazy brown with about a finger of a tan-ish head. The head doesn't last long, and the beer only leaves a slight ring around the glass. Patchy lacing.
Smell: Sweet grains. Traces of some sort of dark fruit like plum or raisin. Doesn't seem to be of the highest quality, but it doesn't smell bad.
Taste: The dark fruit sort sweetness is on the front, and then the rest is some slightly roasted malt to take away from some of that sweetness. There's no real bitterness in this beer, but that malt character does help to keep this from being cloying. On some sips I pick up a faint metallic note, but I'd rather have that over skunkiness any day, which this beer doesn't have. The mouthfeel is pretty thin, with just a little bit of carbonation.
Overall, this beer is just alright. Highly forgettable. The thing that gets me about this beer is the pretentious bottle -- wrapped in foil as if this is a really rare treat. I'd not be opposed to having it again, but it's just too "blah" for me to warrant ever buying it.
