Poured from 24oz bottle.
A- pours a very dark brown with hints of red/orange; decent size head with good retention and good lacing
S-some spice including cinnamon, clove, maybe a little ginger; i get a graham cracker type aroma with a toasted and slightly spicy finish
T-a nice toasted nut flavor, caramel and some spice at the end; not a lot of hop bitterness which I prefer; not overly dry and not overly malty and sweet
M-perhaps a bit thinner than I was expecting in comparison to other SN beers; the aftertaste is pleasant, but its not as full as I'm used to
D-overall a low alcohol, easy to drink and balanced brown ale; I've had other brown ales that tend to be on the hoppy end or too dry, but this wasn't bad at all; I'll definitely be seeking this out later in the season as it will be a great alternative to pumpkin and oktoberfest beers in the autumn nights

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.
