Unsure of age, but know it was bottled this year. Nutty, caramelly, toasted brown malt dominates the aroma. Flavor is fairly sweet and underattenuated, with toasted, nutty malt dominating, finishing sugary sweet, but then countered by hop bitterness, which borders on piney. There are light chocolatey notes that make me think this would go very well with a peanut butter sandwich.
