look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Bought this bomber freshly bottled from the Tröegs Brewery in August 2011, and let it age for over a year. Pours a blood red color that seems clear, but is so dark no night comes through; has a creamy 2 finger tan that faded slowly leaving a creamy layer on top and decent spotty lacing.

I got a whiff of citrus hops up front, followed by caramel, toffee, sweet malt, grapefruit, syrup, raisin, apple, plum and other dark fruit, sweet candy, light herbs, vanilla and booze like rum or a sweet liquor; the hops were stronger than expected after a year, and the nose was sweet and pleasant overall. It almost seems like red wine, with oaky notes from the fruity sweetness.

Tastes very sweet, and almost too sweet, but it did not cross the line or “jump the shark”. Flavors include citrus hops, grapefruit, apple, caramel, toffee, syrup, raisin, sweet malt, plum, cherry and other dark fruit, sweet candy, light herbs, vanilla, biscuit, brown sugar, flowers, piney hops and booze like rum or light alcohol. It’s quite complex, with the fruity sweetness, hops and alcohol all swirling around together. The malt and bready notes balance out the hops, and the fruity sweetness seems like the hops and yeast transformed this into a more wine like experience. There is a nice mild bitterness, and this begs to be sipped slowly like a cognac.

Mouthfeel is thick and smooth at the same time, with a buttery feel on the tongue, a heavy chewy body, mild carbonation, and fruity sweet finish that was slightly bitter. It’s sweet overall, but also complex and rather easy to drink considering the ABV that is always present and the hop bitterness.

I would definitely have this again and recommend trying it as it was highly drinkable to me for the style, and tasty in general. I’m glad I let this age as it was a lot mellower than I expected, and a very fine slow sipper indeed. I'd like to get a few more bottles to try it fresh and age one for a longer period of time. The alcohol kicks in as I took the last few sips, so look out as this one creeps up on you.
