2011 Envious (New Holland)

I picked up a couple of bottles of this Cellar Series release a few years back along with the 2012 Blue Sunday, a nice refreshing sour. This was darker fruity release better suited for the cooler autumn months. The booziness could make it pass for a winter warmer.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This dark brown-black brew had bubbly toffee-colored head that settled to a ring. I smelled light fruit, brown sugar, and molasses. The booziness was there in the aroma.

Taste: Toasted oak flavors came through. It tasted like pear juice and black fruit. It was boozy. It was thick, coating my tongue. It reminded me of a good oaked port. It if it wasn't for the carbonation and toast grain flavors, I'd think this was a wine cocktail.
