Eccentric ale is a perfect name. There is ALOT going on in this beer This is one of the most complex beers I’ve ever had the pleasure to drink. Dark ruby appearance, with lots of flavors and aromas: figs, cherries, rum, toffee, licorice and raisins. Every vintage is a bit different as is every taste! This is a fun, fun beer.

12oz bottle, 2010 edition. Bottled 11/23/11. Labeled as 10.1% ABV. Illustration of a guy with some kind of underwater bicycle on the label. Poured into my DFH IPA glass (is that allowed?). Dark red / brown color, looks clear around the edges. Good thin light brown head. Decent moderate amount of lace. Spicy nose, light chocolate in the aroma. A lot going on with the spices in the brew. Cinnamon. Brown sugar. Some ginger. Earthy hops, kind of herbal. Bigger body. More dry overall. Good lighter smooth carbonation. Long spicy aftertaste. Moderate bitter taste. Lightly spicy bite if you do more than sip it. Spiced maple syrup note in the finish. Very interesting stuff.... And oddly tasty

Bottle to snifter (2008 vintage; shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a dull black with beige lacing. Smells solid; Dark fruit, spice, and hops. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel that doesn’t drink like 11%. good beer.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. This is delicious, very mysterious. Berries, chocolate, maple, brown sugar, fruity alcohol. The alcohol is very well hidden in this 11% beer. Very nice.

Bottle packaged date 11/23/11 forgot who sent this my way but thanks! Pour has a cola brown color and a thin layer of off white head that fell right away. Aroma has dark malt, licorice, peppery spice, chocolate, menthol, and dark fruit. Mouth feel is medium and there is good carbonation. Flavor has some roasted malt, chocolate, peppery spice, medium light bitterness, dark brown sugar, and dark fruits. There is a lot of strong spicing flavors that just make it so hard to isolate them combined with the hops and thick roasted malt make for something very bold but without direction.

2011 version, with persimmons. Thick mouthfeel of black thick looking rich liquid with some white head. Chocolate and spice aroma. Taste is deep chocolate, spicy all the way through, and an edgy bitter American Strong finish. Good drinkability despite high unnoticed abv. Thanks for hooking me up, Chris.

(2010 bottle) Pours a dark root beer color with a small quickly dissipating head. Smalls of booze, age, and malts and not much else. First sip is chocolate, spice - pine, licorice and then deep bitterness. A nice earthiness comes through thanks to the maple syrup. Quite a unique taste that to me works nicely. Carbonation is spot on making for a great creamy mouthfeel. A very nice brew indeed.
