2013 release cellared for 14 months. Pours a hazy reddish brown with small head and minimal lacing. Smells like my Grandmothers Christmas Cake. Aging has mellowed out the hoppyness that was more present when it was fresh. Booziness has also mellowed. Next time I'll only age it for 6-8 months max to preserve a little better balance of the hops/malts. .
