Pours a reddish copper with a thin layer of head that has no retention. Nose is tart, but there is also a hint of cream soda, oddly enough. The dominant flavor is sweet candied sugar, but there are also some dark fruits as well. The finish is semi-dry.
For such a high octane offering, the alcohol is hidden well.
I paired this with a few dark chocolate squares and it made for an exceptional late night dessert.
Updated March 2014: Sampled a glass of 2012 vintage on-tap. This beer is one that certainly gets much better with age. I am committed to buying a few bombers next Christmas for the sole purpose of designating them for cellaring.
