2005 Vintage, drank it March '08.

Stashed away for lil bit. popped it open with some buddies.

A - not much head, nice dark amber color

S - awesome. lots of dark fruits, figs, dark cherries. caramel malts

T - dark fruits, dark cherries for sure, nice brandy back tone, light alcohol burn (not a bad burn, more like a warming sensation)

MF - smoothe, nice sipping beer. low carbonation, medium to light bodied

D - theres good beer and then theres great beer. this beer is a great beer.

looking forward to aging more of this recipe for years to come.

2008 Vintage, drank it February of '09.

pours up a deep mahogany color with a quickly fading off white head. the nose is composed of English smelling malts, caramel, burnt wood. I taste dark cherries, sherry, wood, caramel apple. A very complex beer. medium bodied, low carbo, deeelish.
