A little too sweet for me...but I must admit this is a well-brewed beer. It has a sweet, spicy, fruitiness to it. With a bit of an alcoholic chaser. Its a dark semi-cloudy brown color. I guess after having a Fullerís Vintage Ale 2001 right before this didnít help its rating. Iíll have to try it again and re-rate it.

Awesome beer. Imbibed it last night but wasnít really paying attention to anything but taste (thus the middle ratings). Canít remember it enough to describe it except that I truly enjoyed it.

Some good bang for your buck. Most places sell this at the same price as all other 6-packs and at 7%ABV this can be efficient.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tawny appearance with a large beige head that faded quickly and left spotty lacing. Yeasty aroma of dark fruit and light spiciness. Residual sweetness in the flavor as the caramel malts show up. Spicy notes found in the aroma are still there along with a hint of tobacco. Faint herbal hop presence in the aftertaste. Creamy, medium bodied mouthfeel and a long lasting finish. A great bargin.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pours medium amber, nice head. Aroma bananas bread, dried fruit. Flavor follows aroma... banana bread... though not overly sweet. Exceptionally balanced, light and subtly lush at the same time, with a momentary dry note before a lingering light sweetness. Nice, refined.
