2010 bottling

Appearance: Pours a clear coffee color with a modest head that quickly fades to a ringlet; leggy with dots of lacing

Smell: Fig, raisin, molasses, nougat and butter brickle

Taste: Dark fruit flavors forward, bringing fig and raisin with building undertones of molasses and caramel; nougat and butter brickle flavors build, after the swallow; there is a harsh character in the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with low carbonation

Overall: Five years in the bottle and things have come together nicely here; on to the BB version for comparison's sake

2012 bottle courtesy or Buschbeer. Cheers dude!

Pours a deep rusty brown with a thin khaki head. Plums and caramel on the nose, a touch of port, and a little alcohol. Tons of raisins sprinkled with brown sugar on the tongue. Toffee for sure, maybe a bit burnt, more dark fruit, a touch of warm booze. This is fantastic. Thanks again, Buschbeer.
