Snagged a bottle of this and brought it to a family gathering. I split it with two other people. All three of us loved it. It pours very dark, almost black, with a light head. Whiff of fruit and light booze. The taste is where it comes alive. Slightly boozy, candied sugar, fruity plums. Maybe a little light on the mouthfeel. Some carbonation going on. They really nailed the style. The blending and aging work well. Pricey but delicious.

750ml bottle poured into a wide-mouth wine glass.

Appearance
Hazy copper with ruby red highlights. Has 2 fingers of fluffy tan head.

Nose
Cherry, grape, raisin, Belgian yeast, candy sugar and booze.

Taste
Earthy Belgian yeastiness and peppery alcohol. Molasses and candy sugars. Lighter notes of black plum, fig, cherry and red grape. Notes of bourbon and dry charred oak.

Mouthfeel
Medium-light bodied, warming and smooth.

Overall
Complex and warming. Definitely a big step up from last years anniversary beer. I can't wait to see what's in store for next year.

A: Very hazy dark copper color, with a huge two finger off white head at the top that left a lot of lacing around the glass as you drank this one.

S: Lots of grapes on the nose, and brown sugar, a little bit of cherry and wine smell as well.

T: Lots of malty flavor, yeast, lot of sugar on the backbone, very sweet. Was getting a lot of bourbon on the tongue as well, warming.

M: Medium to Light bodied, barely any carbonation.

O: I aged this bottle for about a year and a half, I kind of wish I drank it right away because I think it would have been a little better, this was a good beer, lots of complex flavors.
