Bomber. I’ve had this almost every Christmas season for several years. Candi sugar nose, yeast, and delicate fruitiness. Dark reddish/brown, with a fat thick head. Sugary initial, moderate fruit: peach, pear, and apple. Medium body, and quite warming. Strong yeastiness and good fruit.

Dacrza (798) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2015
DATE TASTED: December 29, 2015... GLASSWARE: Chimay goblet...OCCASION: basking in the afterglow of The Force Awakens with a beer that has some force of its own... APPEARANCE: dark ruby brown body that reveals none of its contents... the thick, creamy brown head resembles the head of mousse, with thick bubbles wreathing the glass...a thick shade follows its crest... AROMA: ginger, anise, pepper, and vanilla roil in the citrus and pear... small hits of toasted malts work their way in--raisin and currants lastly ... PALATE: creamy, active at the throat, and long-lasting in its finish--one that coats and resounds... shockingly sippable and worth holding in the mouth, with a pleasant, almost softened cola consistency... TASTE: a light grape, vinous sauvignon , with mellow anise, malt, and dry hops that suggest orange and earthy roots...figs and dates, yes sir... slightly sour, with some fermentation making the experience a bit more complex... ...OVERALL: in a run of great strong beers--see Southern Tier’s 2xmas and Corsendonk’s Christmas Ale--Nice more than holds its own, it owns...as drinkable a weighty beer as one finds, with complexity and enjoyability coupling easily... had this a long time ago, then on a St Patty’s Day crawl in State College on tap--and the search was over at The Hop and Vine....one bottle, and one is feeling good...

33cl bottle, served in tulip glass. Poured a dark brown with a huge 4 finger brown head. Aromas of caramel, hops, cinnamon, cloves. Taste continuation of the aroma, very sweet spices and you can taste the Curacao in it as well. Medium body and a bittersweet finish. Overall a very tasty brew for a cold, dark winter night.
