A: Off-white 1-finger head that falls to a thin layer of foam. Dark clear brown color. Mild lacing.
S: Malty, sweet and rich, like whole wheat biscuits and fresh baked bread. A slight cider scent, very mildly buttery. Smells homey and comfortable, relaxing like a calm living room fire.
T: Caramel and malt all the way with a hint of nuttiness. It has some of that cider tang. A bitterness in the end that seems suggestive of both certain malts as well as hop presence.
M: Somewhat thin at first but the body builds as you sip. Seems strange, but it does. Carbonation is a bit harsh for the laid back richness of the flavor.
O: A not disappointing beer but not as outright satisfying as some of SN’s other offerings. I think it would be a much nicer ale if it were bottle-conditioned and/or offered on nitro.

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.
