Chocolate brown with steady creamy cappuccino head. 4
Rum, brown sugar, and oak chest - no sign of oxidation. 4
Chocolate brownie, lots of candied pecans, some dried fig, slight sherry notes, and no hint of hops. 4
Toffee popcorn and hazelnut end and peanut skin linger.

Almost medium, fizzy, sticky, slight salt. 3.75

2 years on this bottle at Florida room temperature, so we’ll just pretend this is a coin flip shelf turd whose ABV might just save it. And so it does: slight sherry notes that might be oxidation fit in with this port-sweet after dinner monster. Hops, roast, or whatever else might have kept this in check are gone or were never there, leading to an Amaretto level of sugariness. Not to any style I know, and needs baby sips, but nice in its own right. 4.25
