I felt good about the 1999 harvest and 2004 sherry harvest but now this, a 2004 calvados. Jw Lee’s sweet, tounge twistingly amazing, harvest ale is at the top of my list in goodness. Um... Goodness

On tap at Of Love and Regret in Baltimore. 2011 version. Really nice. Pours golden with no head. Very sweet. Almost sherry like. Just wonderful.

2004 provided by J.O. Thanks amigo. This is a luscious brew indeed. Pour thick and opaque with a brownish amber hue. No lacing at all but the aromatics are high and very intense. Smells of aged darkfruit, applesauce, caramel, and fruitcake. Full nectar with creamy residual effers. This stuff is dense as I choke on it. Aged nectarine, plumb, peach, citrus, wild apple, brandy, moist carrot cake bread, toast, etc. Very complex and generous with a mild bittering component. This stuff is beautiful.
