COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Caramel, crystal, munich and chocolate malts form a rich foundation for this dark and complex ale. Brewed with an absurd amount of honey from Pennsylvania bees, this braggot has a profound honey character and a nice warming finish. It is the perfect beer to celebrate our sweet sixteen.

This has been cellaring the for some time now. Lots of honey and alcohol notes on the aroma. First tastes are of malt, deep complex malt, honey, barley sugar, chocolate, toffee, caramel, and raisin. The sweetness of the honey lingers and takes for a nice little journey. A little bit of a warming alcohol on the tongue adds to a creamy, chewy mouthfeel. Love this ale. Great beer overall.

The carbonation generates a minor lace in my glass. The aroma is pleasant with notes of honey, slight chocolate, sweet dark malts, and alcohol. The flavor is very good. There is a nice balance between the predominant malts and honey. The combination creates a sweet wine like taste with a minor dryness in the finish. Overall this is an enjoyable beverage.

2013.01.10 - Weyerbacher Sixteen (2011 Anniversary beer) - 12 oz bottle in Pint glass. This is one of my favorite beers. I've drank several cases worth and still have about 6 cases left. Yet I've never reviewed it. Seems fitting tonight as Weyerbacher posted that tonight at the Stirling Hotel in NJ that bourbon barrel Sixteen is on tap, and I would really like to be there. Pours a semi opaque deep mahogany sort of color with reddish highlights where the light penetrates the edges. Almost as if a darker beer has been watered down a bit. Very little carbonation or head, it settles to a ring around the edges of the glass almost immediately. Aroma is sweetness, and it's obvious it isn't candy sugar or otherwise, it's complex honey sweetness. Very similar aroma to Brother Adam's Bragget Honey Ale as I recall. Taste is kind of benign on front end, very mild bitter bite and then the sweetness seems to ramp up and increase toward the back end. Mild alcohol warmth in the throat and a bit in gums, etc. As it tapers off it kind of settles almost to a cough syrupy sort of trailer. Mouthfeel is medium body, mildly creamy, no carbonation. It's not a perfect beer or perfect taste but I really really enjoy it, and have gone to the trouble of having a few cases shipped to me once I cleaned out my local bottle shops. It goes down dangerously smooth and fast for 10.5abv. This beer made me aware that I really enjoy braggots. Aroma 8/10, Appearance 4/5, Taste 9/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 18/20

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a cola like color with a frothy tan head. The nose smells a little papery with notes of dark honey. The flavor is very sweet with strong dark honey notes, a little sherry, and spiced dried fruit lurking in the back. It borders on overwhelming to me, but then I have a hard time with most meads. Still the finish peaks and then quickly ebbs into a lingering light honey finish. Interesting and I’m glad I tried it, but not one I would go back to.

12oz bottle: Pours a clear deep mahogany with a few strands of off-white bubbles. Has a sweet honey and caramel nose with a hint of cherries. Starts with pretty good fullness, light carbonation and toasted malts with plenty of sweet honey graham cracker notes and a touch of brown sugar before a slightly drier, mildly warming finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable.

On tap at the bocktown monaca. Halarious, they pour this like a draft in a big tall glass for $5! Heeheh, this mead is quite intoxicating, such a headknocker. Looks like coffee in the glass with no head nor visible co2. Yes, honey smell abounds. Quite friendly on the olfactory for a’beer’ heheh. poured a s beer this stuff is quite strong, wew. Comes across like port wine, no shit. Asa mead, it is not quite on style yet it still kicks your ass. Got a 12 oz glass for $5, no way. Kick my ass. Barely any co2. Did I say it is an ass kicker? wew. I am so used to small glasses of mead since it is quite winelike that getting a buig mug of this is off the scale. Certainly wine. Kick you in the head.

Bottle. Poured a deep, dark, but clear burgundy when held to the light. Looks dark nearly-black in the glass. Smells of licorice, raspberry, honey. Has a sweet dark-fruit taste in it, similar to plum, maybe some cherry. Despite all the fruit notes it’s not really fruit-tasting.

Draft at barcade Brooklyn. Pours a deep brownish body with no light passing through. Tight off white/brown lacing. Aroma is musky cherry, basement, honey and light wood. Mouthfeel is lightly creamy - medium to light with notes of honey, light alcohol, musky earthiness, dust and light fruit.
