I had this at Lord Hobo earlier in the week.

Poured from the tap into a tulip glass.

The color is a a cloudy dark maroon with a finger or two of foamy brownish head with some nice lacing left on the glass..

The smell is pretty darn malty. There is some slight hops in the back with some dark fruit aroma.

The taste is malty with some biscuit like flavor. There seems to be more dark fruit flavor like raisins and plumbs in the middle with some very light bitterness at the end.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied and is drinkable even more then before. There is quite a difference from a fresh bottle to now two years later. It is still drinkable and goes down easy with a smooth feel.

Bottle from Perry's Liquor in Livermore, Ca purchased summer 2011.

A - Poured a dark copper color with a tan head that leaves lacing behind

S - Is of piney hops on top of sweet caramel malt at this point in time

T - Like the nose bitter citrus and piney hops on strong caramel malt

M - This beer has a medium body with medium carbonation to it

O - I'm sure this beer is well past its prime but its still a pretty good beer that I'm enjoying the hops aren't as fresh as they should be but they're still there making this almost barleywine like with the way it is I think this is still worth drinking if you have the chance.
