This was about as fresh as it gets, found it the first week it was spotted on the shelves (and well-early for the Autumn season at that).
Poured a dark mahogany with a 2 finger head which left very nice thick lacing all the way down the glass.
Smells extremely malty with a silky, nutty (walnut or pecan) delicateness. There was also a some mild wood aromas as well.
This beer is obviously very well malted. It's roasty with semi-sweet overtones. There is a decent hop profile but I found it in balance with the huge amount of malt in this beer. I could taste the alcohol more than expected (but not in a bad way).
This beer is medium bodied with decent carbonation leaving a mild alcohol burn in the back of the throat.
I think you definitely would have to be in the mood for this style (which is why it confounds me SN released it so early). But I found this beer to be very tasty and it really hit the spot after a long night at work. I definitely wouldn't mind another one or two more...
