Growler from Appalachian Vintner. 3/16/14. Very good representation of the style. Nice lacing. Candied sugar, dark fruit. Sweet, but not cloying. High drinkability for the ABV.

Consumed at the brewery on December 30th, 2013.

Very dark, murky caramel color. Only a tiny rime of head.

No aroma (maybe served too cold?).

Sweet. Cinnamon and yeasty dark bread. Some toffee, anise. Sweet.. Did I mention sweet? Treads a fine line between too sweet and sickeningly sweet.

Some carbonation tingle but also slightly watery.

I've never had Westvleteren 12 (which this beer is allegedly a tribute to), but it must be better than this to have such a legendary reputation.
