13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2011
375ml bottle from the Four Firkins. Dark caramel colored pour with a slight foamy white had that quickly fades into a small creamy mass in the middle of the glass. Aroma has a ton going on...very boozy, with the dark fruity notes (figs, raisins, plums) really coming through with a bit of the oak as well. Sweetness engulfs the tongue as you take a drink with the vibrant carbonation bringing everything to life. More of the dark fruit flavors are all over this beer and the subtle oakiness finishes on your tongue after you swallow. Probably not worth the extra cost over the regular version of this beer but definitely worth trying at least once.
