Bottle. Cola colored with a big off white head. Aroma is candi sugar, bourbon barrel and dark fruit. Taste is nutty, Belgian yeast, spices, vanilla and caramel and wood from the barrel. Palate is thick and rich with plenty of carb. This is really complex and tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml C&C bottle purchased at the 2nd Anniversary party. Poured a medium density solid black body with an average sized full foamy dark beige head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, sour chocolate, dark fruits, light bourbon, alcohol soaked oranges, wet old barrels, earth and dark toast. Body starts off medium but builds to a full creamy mouthfeel with softer to average carbonation and fairly well hidden alcohol for a 10.8% ABV. Flavor of bourbon, Belgian yeast, earth, alcohol, vanilla, dark fruits skins, charred toast and a hint of bubble gum. I like this more than the original Anniversary beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Second anniversary beer, on tap at Barcade Jersey City at the Kane 2nd anniversary party. Pour is black with a subtle head; aroma is roasty malt with some dark fruit and toasted bread notes. Taste is a mix of roast and dark fruit in the background - I think this one will age nicely. Solid offering.
