COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This yearís Anniversary beer is a special, "doubled" version of the Alt-Bier. We blended in a portion of Pugachevís Cobra that has been aging in rye barrels for over 16 months to make this a special beer for a special occasion. Youíll experience a caramel and roasty flavor with a spicy oak finish, and a rich malt aroma with hints of fruit esters and alcohol notes.

App: pours reddish brown with beige head that sticks around. aroma of brown sugar, hint of molasses, caramel. Taste is sweet with no bitterness. Palate is thick, sticky and chewy. Seems like it is probably a great beer for what it is but it isnít what iím looking for. Too Sweet. Really really sweet.

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 16, 2013
On draft at the Livermore Saloon. It pours a dark brownish red color with a khaki head. The aroma is a good balance of toasted malt with some cherry and dry notes of wood. The flavor has toasty malt with just a hint of roasted malt, cherry, earth and spicy wood in the finish. Very well balanced and warming. It was a delight.

My co-favorite at the 2012 Barrel Aged Beer Event. Lovely milk chocolate taste in this medium nut brown colored barrel beer. More "alt-y" than Pugachev and easy to sip.
