dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2015
Bois version from a year and a half ago. Probably my favorite version to-date. Tastes almost like a cordial more than a beer since the Anniversary melds so well with the Brandy notes. The spirit notes are really strong, which provides an excellent compliment.
