From the corked, caged bottle cellared for three years and opened on May 1, 2014. Why? No reason. The first of May! Seemed appropriate. Served about 50 degrees.

Lovely looking copper amber pour with busy carbonation leading up to a lingering off-white head that leaves a little lacing.

Those malty aromas remind me a little bit of a Wee Heavy rather than a Helles Bock but after three years it is bound to be more pleasing to the nose. Sweet, toffee, caramel and little to no hop bite.

The body is medium to full even after three years.

The taste also brings out a vibrant sweet malty character but there is a slight honey-like sweetness introducing itself on the backside as well. Little to no bitter finish but a bit dry. Aging has made this a beautiful beer.
