This was crazy. Thanks, Daniel. Aroma was big cinnamon and nutmeg, tons of molasses, burnt chocolate, light fruit, and herbs. Flavor is similar. Tons of spice and molasses with a light berry and roasted malt. Light citrus hops. I don’t really know what to think about this. I guess it’s a bit of a mess but it wasn’t bad...just strange.

Bottle thanks to Jordan
Appearance - Cloudy brown, frothy thin head
Aroma - Rosemary, molasses, toffee, popcorn, seasoned salt
Taste - Molasses, maple, raisins, spices
This beer was pretty complex and not so heavy, considering it’s strength. I’ll remember this one for a while.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an opaque chestnut with a medium tan head...nice lacing. Aroma has caramel, candied fruits, a hint of booziness, earthy/malty. Flavor has lots going on...candied fruit, dark fruits, coffee, bitter/burnt notes...tastes like a quad combined with an imperial stout...fairly bitter. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy with a fruity/bitter espresso/charred finish that lingers...very bitter and very warm. Super complex beer.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2015 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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
