2013 edition served in a Founders snifter.

A - Looks like cognac. No carbonation, as expected. Deep caramel color.

S - Port makes it way to the front almost immediately. A little sugary maple sweetness.

T - Rich, sweet and complex. Hitting some really nice tawny and ruby port notes. The complexity here is dazzling. Some really beautiful maple sweetness and rum overtones as well.

M - Slick. Almost oily. Substantial.

O - Obviously, this is a non-traditional "beer". This is a tremendously complex beverage and to pigeonhole it into any category (other than "barrel-aged blended alcoholic beverage" is to do it a disservice. Enjoy it for it's uniqueness.
