12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Bottled 01/18/13.
A: Pours a hazy amber ruby with a mostly white head. Too opaque to see any visible carbonation. Leaves some spots of lacing on the sides of the glass.
S: Malt forward beer with a nice oak quality. Sweetness from the molasses. Roasted malts give off some fruit like qualities.
T: Mellow brew with a well balanced flavor. Starts off with some sweetness, then the malts come in to say hello. Still a touch of alcohol on the backend after 10months.
M: Medium body with a creamy aspect to it. Low carbonation with a smooth finish. Can be a bit hot fresh.
Overall a solid beer that can be enjoyed by all types of beer lovers. Molasses adds some sweetness to counteract the bold malt flavor while oak comes in to mellow it all out.

I've come a long way and looking at the other reviews I thought I give this guy another go and it pours a reddish copper hue with a creamy one finger head,the smell is quite sweet it's molasses,honey,oak and hidden underneath there is a piney hop bitterness,the mouthfeel is full bodied with minimal carbonation and could use just a touch more I feel and on taste it's definitely an old ale with hints of molasses,caramel,bitter old hops,a residing pine bitterness and finished with nice hit of oak that is quite subdued and works well and overall it's one of those beers that's nice but not something ill come back and revisit like breakfast stout or all day IPA cheers.
