2011 edition. 10.5%

A: Dark amber with a khaki colored head that fades fairly quick to a collar. No lacing.

S: Rich carmel and toffee dominate. A bit of pine hops, but not nearly as prominent as the hops.

T: Nice toffee and carmel maltiness. Bready. Hops are still around for sure, more near the finish. Pine hops. They still have a decent amount of bite too.Just a tad bit of alcohol on the backend.

M: Fuller body. Thick. Didn't remember this was that thick. Nice and smooth feeling. Moderate to lower carbonation.

O: Decent drinkability for the abv. I had the 2011 fresh and I liked it. This is good too, but I think it's kind of in a weird stage where the hops haven't dropped off that much, and the malt isn't doing anything much different yet. Think this would need to be aged another 6 months to a year to really start to shine.
