On tap at the OBF yesterday.

21 pours an amber brown color with OK head retention and fair lacing. The nose is attractive, showcasing brown sugar, lots of chocolate, caramel, cherry vanilla and a hint of orange citrus. The flavor profile generally replicates the nose in this fairly sweet beer, although I also get some sherry and wood flavor as well. There is considerable sweet cherry and vanilla on the palate in this one. Mouthfeel is medium bodied to full, with a fairly long, moderately sweet finish. Drinkability is pretty good, though there is some noticeable alcohol in this aged ale. While not really very heavy on the palate, the beer is pretty rich and sweet, which makes drinking this beer pretty slow going.

Would be a nice beer to enjoy on a cold winter night in the NW (of which there are typically an abundance).
