Had this one thrown in by the beer shopkeeper after filling a box with other selections.
Muddy brown and hazy, with a solid tan head.
Ripe banana, clove, dark fruits – not unique for its smells, but rather for their breadth and depth.
Beers that ring of similar esters are often too over-powering for me, but this one is more delicate and subtle. Deeper and richer too with allusions to roastiness.
Ruminates on the tongue, waiting for you to think it’s going to explode into something more pushy. Instead, it almost creeps up on you, delivering something awesome, but almost understated.
Not my favorite style by any means, but that’s still an incredibly good beer.

4.1/5 rDev -5.5%

Having a bottle touted as brewed in 2005, aged for 8-9 years. Having not rated in the style before, I wasn't sure I'd like it, to begin with, let alone an aged version (or maybe ill like it better).
Upon pour and what little scent I got, it reminded me of some barleywines or some Belgian dark ales. Raisin notes win out emanating from the muddy-auburn brown liquid. The taste is also of dark fruit-fig and dark brown sugar, a touch of banana and a slight tang of alcohol bite. The feel has a surprising effervescence to it, considering there was so little head or obvious carbonation in the look.
A very smooth, dark-style beer. The bitterness I normally enjoy in a beer is nicely replaced with a bite of alcohol and presumably carbonation. I expected a well-balanced beer when I saw the rating, and I wasn't disappointed.
