COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This years Anniversary beer is a special, "doubled" version of the Alt-Bier. We blended in a portion of Pugachevs Cobra that has been aging in rye barrels for over 16 months to make this a special beer for a special occasion. Youll experience a caramel and roasty flavor with a spicy oak finish, and a rich malt aroma with hints of fruit esters and alcohol notes.

App: pours reddish brown with beige head that sticks around. aroma of brown sugar, hint of molasses, caramel. Taste is sweet with no bitterness. Palate is thick, sticky and chewy. Seems like it is probably a great beer for what it is but it isnt what im looking for. Too Sweet. Really really sweet.

thanks to Tim for the hookup on this, and in the new 4th Ann glass to boot. You rock! Pours dark brown with a huge light tan head that leaves a nice lacing the length of the glass. Aroma is really nice and have tremendous depth. Big toast and nutty malts, the rye whiskey is apparent but finessed well as it only complements. Flavor is extremely rich, caramel and light roast notes blend with nutty character and big wood in the finish. This is awesome stuff, and one of my favorites from this brewery.

Clear reddish brown hue. Mild licorice aroma. Malty, prune and licorice flavor. Mild easy drinking body.

1st rating from tap at Hangar. Dark pour with reddish tint and a chestnut head. Taste is dark toasted rye bread and biscuits with a hint of some barrel roll in there. Almost like a sessionable barrel roll. Nicely done.
