12oz bottle - 2009 vintage
Appearance: Deep ruby color with shades of brown, crystal clear, firm tan head on pouring, settles to a thin ring after a few minutes.
Aroma: sweet light and dark caramel, figs, rich maltiness, peaches? Alcohol evident, but not overpowering. Almost no hop aroma.
Taste: Rich, rich malty goodness with myriad caramel flavors. medium-high bitterness is surprisingly high given the subdued hop aroma and flavor. Dark dried and fresh fruits like raisins, dates and figs.
Mouthfeel: full body, sweetness carries through the finish. Super, warm finish calls out for a chilly evening by the fire or a rich full body cigar. very nice!
Serving type: bottle
