Poured chestnut brown into a pint glass, with expectedly little carbonation, a thin offwhite head, and spotty lacing. Smelled of toffee, caramel, malt, oak, and a big earthiness. The latter dominated all other aspects of the flavor; almost to a point where the beer tasted leathery. Certainly seemed as if it would benefit from aging. However it did possess a dry hoppy aftertaste. Didn't feel as thick as the appearance either; a little too much on the thin side. I struggled to finish my one pint.

Sampled last night on 12/18/13. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.
Pouts a dark reddish-brown in color with a small off-white head. Some lacing was seen when sipped. The aroma is of strong roasted malts. The taste was..well very bitter with a harsh strong 'hoppy' aftertaste which lingered for way to long. Tried it again a few minutes later and wasn't any better at all. After two more sips, I had had enough as it was way to hoppy of a harsh bitter aftertaste for me and poured the rest out.
