2002 edition bottled 11/02, sampled 06/03. pours a clear dark mahogony with a long lasting, tight, creamy head. roasty malts and citrusy hops on the nose. spicy, oily, roasted malty flavor followed by a lemony hoppiness. full, smooth, creamy body with a good level of carbonation. the hops have mellowed somewhat and aren't as "green" as upon initial relaese. i taste a more pronounced chocolate character as well. has mellowed nicely in 8 months while still retaining the characteristic hoppy snap. and all around great beer to look forward to at xmas, and one that seems to stand the test of time well.
