Cellared this on 12/19/11. Time to see what’s doing.

Popped the top and sweet smells abound from well over a foot away.

Pours a dark, dark brown ale with a nice beige colored head that dissipates rather quickly and leaves a ring around the glass and light film over the top.

The aroma is filled with wonderful things. Still boozy up front with wakes up the nostril hairs, sweet malt, dates, prunes, grapes, chocolate, plums, rubber and syrup.

The taste is a touch on the sweet side but at 15% abv, it works well. There is enough dark fruits, sugary candy, prunes, brown sugar and malt to get your mind on this sweet brew….though again…it is sweet. Maybe a touch of hops but this a monster brew that does what it should.

Mouthfeel is slick and oily.

Overall I really enjoyed this monster. A strong ale indeed. I probably drank this a little early as I’m sure this beast can lay down for many years. Boozy and bold and worth the effort to enjoy. 15 hops and 15 malts and this is still something special. Just wish I bought at least five and drank one each year to see what fun I could have. Sigh.
