This beer pours out of the bottle a dark amber, with ruby highlights, topped off with a thick, frothy faintly tan-colored head. The head foams up into a large cloud, but soon dissipates leaving lacing down the sides of the glass as it goes. The nose is fairly faint with a subtle malt flavor coming through, and just a little hop crispness, which only seems to emphasize the malts. The taste mirrors the smell very closely. The main flavor is a smooth well balanced malt character, with just the right hop crispness to emphasize those malts without being too noticeable on its own. This beer has quite a good mouth feel, not too heavy, not too light, and it goes down quite smoothly. This is a very drinkable beer, one I could sit down and drink a few of any time from fall through early spring. Sierra Nevada did a great job with this one, its taste is really reminiscent of a crisp fall day.

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.
