Appearance: Pours brownish but with a lot of ruby streaks, big fluffy white head that craters and leaves lace all over the place.
Smell: Nutty and sweet with a bit of a sweet chocolate flavor on the end. Some biscuity/bready background.
Taste: Almost tastes like a mellowed out (less sweet) almond joy. Big nutty character with a bready sweet body and a sweet finish. Flavor is pretty relaxed and not overdone (falls on the lighter english brown rather than the american porter side of things).
Mouthfeel: Super creamy but smooth and easily drinkable.
Drinkability: I'm starting to really dig these newer brown ales (definitely a style that's been neglected in the past few years). This one goes down smooth, mixes well with most robust food flavors and finishes nicely. I can definitely drink these all night long especially come the cooler (maybe not cold, thats imperial stout time) weather.

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.
