Pours a rich dark brown with a nice one finger tall cocoa coloured head that dissipates shortly. Reminds me of a lot of common English barleywines in colour.

Smells of dark fruits with a rich complex blend between brown sugar, molasses, burnt cookie, and some charred oak.

Tastes come through similarly as the smell. Lots of burnt brown sugar/caramel with a nice raisin/prune character. Sweetness of molasses paired with the malty roasted nutty character.

Mouthfeel is fairly rich and has a syrup quality that coats the tongue. Medium amount of carbonation helps it from feeling too viscous. A great sipper.

Overall, this is a fantastic once a decade beer. Great smell, flavours, and feel that all comes together to create a rememberable beer. Definitely glad to have tried this one and I would recommend this to anyone who really enjoys English barlywines and American strong ales. Celebration ale indeed.
