Big thanks to Alex (Masterski) for schlepping this one up from chi-town. Haven't had a bottle of this in a year or so, so it will be nice to see how it is doing.
Pours a deep mahogany color with ruby highlights, a little cloudy. Carbonation seems fine.
Nose is still quite boozy, but not as bad as it was a year ago. Also getting big dark fruit notes, a little woodiness, and some sweet caramel/toffee flavors.
Taste follows with huge caramely flavors, big dark fruit and a nice booziness that compliments the flavors and the mouthfeel. Not picking up that much wood, but a nice subtle vanilla note that i didn't pick up in the nose as well. Finish is clean, next to no bitterness, as the style calls for. Booze and thick caramel linger in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is damn close to perfect. A great chewy viscosity and ideal carbonation for the style.
"overall" uh...good? Really alot like Arctic Devil.
Really enjoyed drinking this, just like the first time around. Thanks again for packing this one up with you Alex, a shame we didn't get to it while you were still here. Great beer.

4.19/5 rDev -6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a clear auburn color, with 1/2" of light khaki colored head. pretty nice retention time, and ultimately reduced down to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. minimal lacing.
Smell: Rich, sticky toffee, vanilla, hints of wood, medium amount of oxidation, which does not retract too much, and is reasonable considering this is 4 years old.
Taste: Toffee, caramel, sherry, wood, vanilla, and hints of oxidation, although not as prevalent as the nose. Sweet, but not too much so especially for this style.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full mouthfeel, appropriate carbonation, sticky with residual sugars. Again, good. Overall, this probably would have been better a year ago, but still has retained much of its quality. A bit oxidized, but does not affect the beer too much overall. I have a 2011 that I will open very soon and hope it has faded a bit less than this.
