Merry New Year

Not really in the mood to write a bunch about this beer…or any beer, really.  Just wanted to say Happy New Year, and I hope everyone is sipping on something lovely.  Just like the first time I had this Barrel-Aged Old Tavern Rat, there are tons of sherry/madeira notes from the barrel aging with a rich, viscous quality that is just awesome to sit with.  The hops have melted away, but are not really necessary anymore.  The sweetness and richness are what stands out.  It really makes for a great late-night sipper.  There are still bottles available at the Sidebar and 5th Quadrant, so make the effort.  It’s worth your time.
