Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Almost clear dark amber body with a creamy lacing on top. Vinous tones with iron, prunes, light vanilla, some flowers and white pepper. The flavour is subtle, yet peppery with a light alcohol touch. Lot of wood, some prunes, light bitter, and some toasted grainy darker bread... Aftertaste is pencil scrape, vinous, prunes and wood... Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, more than medium bodied.

Gerbeer (3420) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2015
375 ml bottle. Pours a beautiful deep copper color with light to moderate head. Aromas of candied fruit/oranges, baked apples, light oak, and light toasted malts. Flavors of dried fruit (almost like trail mix), light oak, sweet wine and still a bit of doughy malts. Surprisingly light in body. Excellent though likely not going to get better with additional aging.
