bhensonb (12577) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Bottle from Bottle Barn - hidden in a row of DoppelWeizen in the back cooler. Priced at $3.99 for 22 oz. Can’t find a date, but with that price it can’t be too young. Dark clear ruby color with a frothy 3-finger tan head. Aromas of dark fruit and caramel. Very smooth aroma. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Rather vinous -suggests dark sherry-, with raisins, dates, caramel and some decent hop. It’s so rich there’s almost a coffee note. The heat is not present until way into the finish, and even then it’s not bothersome. Despite the sweetness in the finish it has an astringent effect on the membranes. Like there’s oak. Really good dark ale. Too bad N. CA is having a warm dry January, but I’ll suffer with this winter warmer. Gladly. Gratefully.

Nice aroma. Alcohol sweet blends nicely with the maltiness. Healthy mix of the two, with decent hops to complement. Goes down tremendously well.

Tmoney99 (12040) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear ruby color with a moderate frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy dark fruit bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid complex beer.
