I had this last night at my local watering hole,Pints. What a beer! The local distributor had been sitting on a keg of last years, so this was a 2011 vintage. At first pour the beer was cloudy similar to an unfiltered cider, with shades of hazy brown. slight head with a great amount of lacing. I could smell notes of vanilla. The mouth feel was very smooth and subdued; the perfect amount of carbonation. There was a subtle hop flavor, but none of the bitterness remained. Definite notes of brown sugar hit my palate in a big way with some roasted malt. As the beer warmed the flavor intensified and the haze cleared a bit,revealing a shade similar to clear amber. This is how winter beer should be. I could drink this beer year round but especially in the winter.
Serving type: on-tap
