COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A special dark version of 14 that we’ve brewed for sale at the brewery only. This 11.8% wheat wine is incredibly smooth for as young as it is. We used dark wheat malt for the special version of this brew instead of regular wheat malt.

Cloudy brown beer, no head. Sweetish malt and alcohol nose. Sweet spice too. Slightly dry palate. Sweet malt, sweet spice. Trace of bubblegum. Aniseed alcohol. Dry warming finish. Not great - perhaps should have left this for a year or two.

A: The pour is an amber brown sort of color with a finger of off-white head. S: Not quite as boozy as the regular, thankfully. Some banana and lots of citrus, maybe some other dark fruit notes. A little bit of toasted and roasted malt. T: Maybe a little bit of vanilla and toasted malt. There’s a little bit of banana and some citrus fruit flavors. Still fairly boozy, but that’s not surprising. Also some brown sugar and caramel. M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. O: Though not as boozy as the regular version, it’s still a bit much.

Not too retired bottle from Oak Tree. Glad they decided to bottle this. Pours hazy brown with transient beige smear of bubbles. Nice aroma of aged/overaged dark fruits. Strong C2H5OH aroma as the tulip approaches nose. Full bodied. Frothy creamy carb. Flavor is pretty roasted malt/wheat, with minor heat impacts on mouth edges. It’s sweet, but there’s enough bitter to knock that down. The brown sugar/fruity flavors are exquisite. It is a challenging and rewarding drink.

Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a clear dark caramel red color with a tan 1/2 finger head of tiny bubbles. Caramel, dark fruit, banana, and slight alcohol. Some lace left on the glass as the head settles out. Medium mouthfeel. Starts off with a pretty sweet caramel and fruit flavor and quickly transitions to a bitter boozy flavor. Ends rather cleanly with only a slight alcohol aftertaste. As it warms the bitter ending becomes a little more prevalent. Overall, not bad but not a true favorite either.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2010
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid mahogany with 3 finger off-white head. Nose is caramel, toffee, red wine grapes, cobwebby figgy yeasty esters, berry, cherry, and spice. Tastes very malty, yeasty estery, with cherry and berry, a lot of caramel, some fig, backup hops. Complex, but a bit muddled.

Brewery only release. Pours cloudy amber/brown, with an off white head. Aroma is honey, malt, fruit, and spices. Flavor is fruit, honey, malt, spices, and some alcohol. I like this one better than the original.
