11.2 oz bottle. 2007/13980.

A- Chestnut brown with a deep, thick haze. Huge creamy head with lengthy retention and lots of lace.

S- Banana bread, raisins, cloves, some licorice and a hint of sourdough.

T- Wow. It's like being hit with a boxing glove made out of banana bread. Instant warming. Big, complex palate of raisins, malt and syrup; with a measure of thanksgiving spices and a sourdough body. Alcohol is right up front, but not at all unpleasant.

M- Cold, a bit syrupy, with a warming finish.

D- Very drinkable despite the 12% abv. Not overly carbonated or too sweet.

This truly is a world-class beer. Striking taste and unique complexity; a perfect fall or winter warmer.

Also of note--glassware truly makes a difference with this beer. My first time I had it in the traditional chilled Aventinus glass, and the second time was in a standard chilled pint glass. To get the full bouquet and flavor experience you need the traditional glassware.
