500ml bottle poured into a weizen glass.
Pours a hazy dark brown making sure to get the yeast sediment out of the bottom of the bottle.
Smells of banana, clove, and bubblegum. Wonderful yeasty character. Little bit of grass in there as well and maybe just a faint hint of alcohol.
Taste begins with strong clove and banana changing to some dark fruit; plums and a pretty strong cherry flavor. A little bit of pipe tobacco comes towards the end finishing up with a passing taste of alcohol. Mouthfeel is smooth and a little sticky at the end.
Wow, this is an amazing beer. It really surprised me in that the alcohol is very well hidden and it is a truly refreshing beer. Wonderful combination of flavors going on. I'll have to pick up another bottle very soon.

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.
