2012 release, ~4-5mo. old.
A: Dark copper/ruby red with off-white head. Retention is good and lacing is decent
S: Big sweet caramel aroma dominates. Behind it are a touch of spicy and earthy hops. Very slight alcohol.
T: Sweet caramel mixed with a noticeable amount of alcohol bite. Aftertaste is a spicy hop, oak + vanilla, with a tiny bit of pine coming through.
M:Medium-full bodied with medium carbonation. Silky smooth and dry.
O: I haven't had this fresh so I'm not sure how it's "supposed" to taste like but I like it. Malt heavy with not much of a bitterness. It may just be an older bottle, but this wasn't as "arrogant" as I thought it would be.
Serving type: bottle
