Brewed 2010 and a bottling date in 2011. Consumed in 2014

Appearance: pours a deep leathery brown color. hints of red and orange. a finger or so of a tannish head with decent retention and leaves behind a spotty lacing. completely opaque with a murky cloudiness. leaves behind a nice yeasty slurry in the bottle.

Smell: dark fruit qualities that are quite liquor like. earthy to leathery notes from a bit of oxidation. molasse. caramel and toffee sweetness.

Taste: opens with a bit of malty sweetness. dark fruits-like liquor comes in next with raisins and plums, can be almost rum like. a strong slightly bitter earthiness comes in along with a slight hint at roasted malts. leathery at times. Oak barrel qualities come in towards the end with molasses vanilla, more sweet toffee. alcohol is sometimes present and a little solvent-like.

Mouthfeel: full and chewy. some bitterness. a little bit of a prickly carbonation.

Overall: I don't know how I have overlooked this beer for so long. its just the kind of beer I love. nice sweet malty notes along with great spirit like character and just a bit of age to it. great balance and taste.

Been wanting to try this, and finally got the opportunity.

A - Complex aroma of bread crust, toast, toffee. Low earthy, spicy hops come through at the end. Moderate prune esters add to the complexity.

A - Dark copper color, somewhat hazy. Beige head with tight bubbles stays well.

F - Lots of complex malt: toasty, toffee, molasses, hints of roast. Hops peek through to balance nicely and help dry the finish. Hints of oxidation, but in a good way.

M - Rich and full. Low, pleasant alcohol warmth. Moderate carbonation. Alcohol dries the finish.

O - Well-balanced and complex. Will get this again when colder weather sets in.

Slightly tart dry with an almost sweet aftertaste. Enjoyable and savory. Clear dark amber with big head. Been wanting to try this for long time but didn't want to pay the price. Glad I did.
