look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured into a snifter. Bottle says EJNOY BY JAN 31, 2013.
A- Pours a clean, reddish brown color with a 3/4 inch light tan head that retains well before reducing to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of bubbly surface foam. Thick ring of resilient lacing.
S- Moderately pungent hop aroma with nice toasty malt notes to back it. Somewhat herbal with some alcohol fume trailing at the end. Musty.
T- Highly bitter, even for me. Mainly vegetal-type hop flavor with the toasty malt attempting to be seen but the bitterness is too powerful. Alcohol is well-masked. Also, did I say bitter?
M- Full-ish body with medium carbonation and a sticky, resinous feel from the hops.
O- Haven't had this in years and I still like it a lot. It's just not as complex as I thought it was. Basically just a hop bomb, which is fine.

3.81/5 rDev -8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance - The beer was a dark copper color with a fluffy off-white head crowning the snifter. Lacing followed the sides of the glass.
Smell - The malts dominated the smell with notes of fresh bread and banana hovering in the background.
Taste - On the initiate taste, the bitterness of chocolate and alcohol strikes me. Caramel makes a brief appearance. Oaky notes and vanilla float in toward the back, leaving a dry woody impression.
Mouthfeel -Carbonation is modest with few warming qualities despite the ABV. Clearly the alcohol is well masked.
Overall - I aged this one for quite a while and must state that I am not sure the waiting was worth it.
