4.05/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - Cloudy dark reddish brown with a creamy off white head that persists for a good while and settles down to a solid flat cap.

S - Fruity, spicy, sweet, and a little winey. Almost that candi smell too.

T - Luxuriously smooth, mild, malty like cereal. I don't get as much of the fruity note from the aroma though there's a hint of banana and maybe a raisiny thing going on. A little sting is left on the tongue and in the back of the throat afterwards. That's unusual - it's almost like a whisper of jalapeno sting minus the jalapeno flavor. It's never too prominent and fades gradually but lasts a really long time. I don't get the strong alcohol taste some others have mentioned.

M - soft, medium-thick, more carbonation than expected

O - A really pleasant, soft, rich, malty beer with a lot going on. Drinks like a thick stout but with much more malt and no bitterness.

Bottle Date: 2010 038070 / Consumed: Aug. 2012

Serving Type: 2010 bottle poured into a snifter glass from World Market

Appearance: Dark brown / raisin-y with a single finger of head

Smell: Booze, wheat, dark fruit

Taste: This is awesome. Time has been kind to this beer and has produced what can only be described as "alcoholic raisin bran". It's literally like drinking an alcoholic version of the cereal.

Mouthfeel: Sweet with a little bit of burn. A little chewy like a beer of this quality should.

Overall: I like this one a lot, though time does not seem to tame the alcohol bite, so much as just bring out the rest of the flavors. It's a great beer and should not be ignored on the shelves, despite all of the newer craft beers out there.
