I'm about halfway through my second case of this beer this year. Really really liking it. Easily my favorite offering of this season.
Poured into my go to pint glass. It's a dark copper ruby color, but it's very clear. Lacing can be good if your glass is perfectly clean (which mine was not tonight).
Smells amazing. nice roasted malts, biscuit in there, caramel as well.
Taste is more of the same, with a bit of a grassy hop presence at the very end to sort of send you on you way.
Medium mouthfeel, cause you definitely want this one hanging around.
Overall I would say this is probably the barometer for an american brown. Terrific malt backbone, and just a kiss of hops in there to differentiate it from it's english counterpart. Will definitely be getting more of this before the season is over. Aside from the hemisphere beers that SN does, this is right up there with my favorites.

A - Impressive head over a dark brown, mostly opaque brew. Good lacing.
S - This might be the age, but not much more than some harsh malt notes with a bit of bread.
T - Surprisingly good. Some nice malt, roasted grains. Some bitterness on the close, but very easy to drink.
M - Lively and crisp, which shocked me, given the age.
O - This was a beer well beyond its standard drink by period, which actually speaks well of it, because it held up surprisingly well. When I saw it on the shelf, I knew I had to try it, because it was something I might never see again. I'm glad I did, because it was an impressive brew, even with the age on it. Hope it comes around again.
