2.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
A: pours burnt caramel, central opacity bordered with golden hues. No indications of carbonation. Looks like Tomme mighta helped with this one...
S: Cool. Smells like Bananas Foster and some nougat. Intriguing.
T: Cola, flat cola flavor. Some slight weed ash, mixed with more hints of banana. After taste is unconventionally infantile: as in, reminds me of diapers out of the package.
M: Nearly flat and relatively thick feeling. Sticky and I try not to get much on my lips as the residual sugars are certainly daunting.
O: I don’t really care for this. The nose is awesome, but the flavor is a letdown. Mouthfeel is also very poor.

12oz bottle from who knows where. Been siting in a trunk for a few years. Hazy brown pour with a thin off-white. Aroma is brown sugar, bread and spice. Tastes are sweet sugary, honey, roasted malts, citrus, spices. Boozy. Lots happening, but not my bag - too sweet.

Cracked a bottle of this for the first time in awhile. Poured a dark hazy brown, smelled strongly of honey and surprisingly boozy given its age. Definitely sme brown sugar and a sharp almost brandy-like aftertaste.

Aroma of bananas foster, sugar and slight wheat. Pours light red with foamy film. Taste is sweet banana, brown sugar, and rum. Delicious.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013.01.11 - Weyerbacher Fourteen (Anniversary 2009) - 12oz bottle in goblet. Pours a cloudy caramel or raisin medium dark tan. Almost no carbonation but there is a trace ring that laces a bit and a tiny island cap in center. Holding up to light shows some bubbles feeding from bottom. Aroma is raisin-y sweetness, reminding me of DFH Raison Dâ€™Extra. Very close whiff has a bit of starchiness. Candy sugar perhaps. Taste. Hmmm. Hard to describe honestly. I honestly donâ€™t get a definitive "wheat", but it is 3 years old at this point and I donâ€™t drink a lot of wheat stuff. Basically a bit of medicinal alcohol bite with some "tang" on the front end. Doesnâ€™t really change, just fades away. Mouthfeel is pretty dense and full but not really creamy. Mild to little carbonation. Like I said, I donâ€™t really get wheat from this at this point. Itâ€™s more like a cross of DFH Raison Dâ€™Extra and a barleywine / old ale like North Coast Old Stock Ale to my taste/experience. Aroma 6/10, Appearance 4/5, Taste 7/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 15/20

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando. Slightly murky orange-amber pour with a small soapy head. This one is bizarre, but interesting. Aroma is wheat, sweet caramel, and hot booze. There’s a little honey in here too. Very hot alcohol on the taste - feels in excess of the stated 11.8% - plus some candied sugar and maybe peppermint (or maybe that’s just the booze). Doesn’t look like a beast, but it sure tastes like it.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy and somewhat bubbly amber color with a moderate head. A lot of wheat and grain notes in the nose. A little sweet with some hints of alcohol to it.

Shared by jayhawk73. Thanks Jeff!
The beer is hazy and orange hued with an off white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma brings citrus fruits, malt, and alcohol. The beer is full bodied, with a heavy citrus and alcohol presence. The finish lingers for a considerable time, with alcohol presence growing in strength as I progress through the beer. This is a good beer to split. Six ounces is plenty. A solid example of the style, I would have this again.
