Bottle date: June 26, 2012 at 1:27 in the afternoon.

Poured into a glass mug. Pours clear reddish copper with a tall, off-white head. There's a moderate amount of visible tiny bubbles in the beer. The head dissipates very slowly, hanging around for a long time. Plentiful lacing is left behind on the glass as the head retreats. The aroma is filled with bready and sweet malts as well as floral hops. The beer smells like crusty bread.

The flavors are very well-balanced with nothing being overpowering. The malt brings those subdued caramel and crusty bread qualities and there are some floral and piney hops to provide balance. The alcohol is well hidden here. There is a mild aftertase from the malt and hops. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. The beer is smooth with a slightly dry finish. The drinkability is very high. This is an excellent beer.

Poured from the bottle into a clean pint glass.

This beer pours a beautiful dark cherry red with a khaki head that leaves pretty lacing down the side of the glass.

Smell - Let this one warm up slightly - The nose on this beer is wonderful, starting with some roasted, faint coffee, dark chocolate and fig like notes.

Taste - This beer does not let down - Starts off sweet, as it rolls over the palate, the hops make their presence known and combat the sweetness. This brings us to the finish, which then appears a bit of alcohol, probably because of the 8.1% abv, however it doesn't last long till a coffee like aftertaste is left on the palate.

Mouthfeel - Very good medium bodied. Not light yet not heavy.

Overall - I think this is a solid brew. Lots of flavors for the enjoyer to figure out and keep you wondering. Not boring by any means. Sweet, bitter, roasty with enough alcohol warmth. What a great brew this is!
