3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Traded bottle as Papier with a thick dose of black wax to keep that cap on. Pours a murky brown color with no real head just some bubbles. Big aroma of molasses, dark malt and a hint of steak sauce I think. Bold flavor with a bit of spice and a syrupy mouthfeel. This is definitely a sipper but for 14.5% the booze is actually well hidden. Strange lingering finish. Good but not really my thing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2009 1st anniversary bottle, labeled "Papier". Black wax. Thanks to beace for this one. Shared with Jay. Hazy dark red brown color. Beautiful color, but no head or lace. The beer is pretty flat, but it doesn’t hurt it at all really, it’s pretty nice and has a good creamy texture. The beer is 5 years old, to be fair. Awesome nice dark fruit, vanilla aromas. Moderate sweet taste, lightly dry finish. Just a light hint of tart / tannic notes. Hides alcohol amazingly well. Very enjoyable stuff. Great one to share between two people.
