An amazing beer. Dark fruits and caramel mixed with mild vanilla. Batch 51 rather aged sample. Dark chocolate and some sweet maltiness. Also a little rum and maple syrup. Very complex and balanced.
On tap at Beavertown Extravaganza. Aroma has malt, light smoked notes and some sugar. Taste has bitter roasted malt, dried fruits, some coffee and wood barrel notes. Clareeses (144) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 14, 2017

Aroma 8 /10: date, plum, cinnamon, clove - lots of winter spices
Appearance 3 /5: dark brown, little head
Palate 3 /5: sticky, syrupy, boozy. Very little carbonation.
Taste 8/10: raisiny sweetness and plum skin bitterness initially rounds out with chocolate and savory notes.
Overall 18/20: really beautiful and complex beer, I can appreciate this even though I'm not a huge fan of the style.
