Yeah, what he said!

Pours ruby-amber, with a finely beaded cream colored hhead that hangs around for a while. Could smell it being poured four feet away - an unmistakable aroma of honey, malt, and alcohol that gets your attention in a hurry. It lets you know up front that it's big.

Verrrrrry smooth - the honey sweetness blends in with the malt to give a very round, warm mouthfeel, with the alcohol kicking in more gently than the smell would lead you to believe. As the sip progresses, a flavor note akin to scotch - a sort of smoky malty dry alcoholic taste - appears, which seems to round it out even further. The finish is simply luscious, with fermented honey flavors that tie this together. Compared to the fresh keg, it's mellowed incredibly.

A beer to be sipped, slowly, on a cold afternoon - which is exactly what I did. The original percent alcohol may have been 12, but my guess is that it's gotten stronger in the past year. (947 characters)
