12/2/11. 22oz bottle courtesy stevencon! Perfumey aroma of flowers, hops, brown sugar, a slight touch of dark fruits. Sweet entry of brown sugar, dark fruits, and flowers at first, but it transitions to bitterness and a bit of papery cardboard. Not bad, actually, but I don’t love it.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2011 Big fruits and malty caramel on the nose followed by toffee and piney hops. Appearance is a massive dark shade of brown with a small foam head. Taste is a thick malty caramel with a pleasant leafy hop bitterness on the finish. Its a nice sweet, crisp full-flavored beer. There is a subtle hint of fruitiness in the background. Overall, this beer is full of well balanced flavors. With a pleasantly thick taste on the palate followed by a refreshing hop bitterness. I’d give this an A+ rating.

Let it warm up a bit and you’ll have a thick, sweet, fruity, and hoppy nectar. Very complex and nicely boozy. Finally impressed with Widmer.
