2011 Vintage at the suggestion of the beer guy. (1 year old bomber)
Appearance: Pours a beautiful dark amber/brown. Thick, creamy off-white head. No light penetrates the center, and the edges make a glowing orangish-copper haze. Good, clingy lacing. There are some fine particulates suspended.
Smell: Tons of malt and spices. Aroma is very rich and full.
Taste: Whole lotta malt. Tastes strong, but not as boozy as I thought it would. LOTS of malt. Very little ho presence until the aftertaste, which has a piney, oily finish.
Mouthfeel: Carbonated well with a medium-full body.
Overall: She's a beast of a beer with an entertaining character. I'd love to have tried this year's back to back. It's good to try, and expensive (slightly) to drink. I doubt I could do more than one of these per sitting.
Serving type: bottle
