2006 edition, so about 9 months old now. Though this wasn't exactly cellared cold for that whole span, so effective age i'd estimate to be more...
Pours deep hazy orangish brown with khaki head, though modest, laces very well and holds a great cap. Aroma is loads of sweet malts, bready, caramel and lots of green hops. Starts off with a rindy, pithy citrus hop flavor melded very well with caramel and toffee. Very bready. Lots of earth and spice to the hps. Ends with sweetened hops fading. Very balanced. Very slick and smooth across the palate. Viscous, creamy and full. Medium low carbonation. Drinkability is OK.
Not as complex as i would have expected. But nice.
