Overall: Of note, this is the first time I’ve had the anniversary beer from the bottle, as I’ve been saving previous years for a special occasion. This beer is insanely sweet and alcoholic, and has it’s rightful place in small taster glasses, and split between a room of people. Very complex, decadent, and strong by strong ale standards.
