** This is a dark strong. Dark burgundy with a nice foam. About a quarter inch but is hangs around. Aroma is malt, caramel and yeast. Big malt and caramel flavor. Some dried fruit and a little coffee in the finish. Maybe tobacco I can’t decide. Well carbonated. This is an excellent beer! World class. Very limited release but if you can get some you?re in for a treat.

Sample shared @ RBWG Tampa. Thanks to whoever brought this! Amber pour with a small off-white head. Nose is has some toast and croissant. A bit of caramel, baked apples. Flavor is nicely balanced - sweet grain, mellow toastiness. Soft fruit. Light earth. Eminently drinkable. Medium body, soft carb.

Bottle at the RBWG 2015 Grand Tasting. Pours cloudy amber with a foamy, off-white head. Sugary and bready malts define this one, along with a bit of caramel, brown sugar. Mild ripe orange. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Pretty drinkable stuff. Tasty.

Old rating. I've had this twice and never rated, huh? Well I remember a mash of banana Belgian and booze. A little muddled. Maybe aged it would settle.

This tastes and smells like a strong ale had sex with a dunkelweizen and this popped out. Banana and booze and malt with a bit of minerally water taste and a slight bitter hoppiness at the end.

Purchased illicitly in Michigan a few weeks back. Beige coupe on the side of the road, told the guy I was looking for a good time. Quite a bit of head, but I’ve done worse for a beer.

New Glarus 20th Anniv. strong ale.
Refined and aged (I presume), this pouts with a fine orange-brown body that has excellent clarity and is topped by a good head. The aroma suggest liquer at least as much as ale. The strong ale style (such as it is) comes out clearly upon tasting.
