Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Pours dark brown in color with a tan head with notes of caramel, toffee, chocolate and toasted bread. Flavors of caramel, toffee and chocolate notes open with interjecting notes of wood and herbal bitterness from English hop varietals then moving back into semi-sweet chocolate, caramel and toffee and is dried out in the finish with toasted malt notes that resemble roast peanuts.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

I poured this one from a 750ml crown capped brown bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.

A= Poured a deep brown color with a lot of haze/cloudiness (despite the fact that the bottle had been undisturbed in the fridge for a couple months). The head rose about 3/4" with an average pour. Lots of sheet lacing and stickage.

S= This is where I began to worry. The aroma was dominated by a lot of dry wood and wet paper bag notes. Also present were some light hints of nuts and chocolate.

T= Better than the aroma, especially as it warmed. Slight roast, toffee, and hints of chocolate up front. There was definitely some wood character coming through, though the species defied my ability to identify. That nagging wet paper flavor is in there too. Some firm hop bitterness midway, leading to a fairly dry finish.

MF= Medium bodied with a modest carbonation level. Creamy mouthfeel.

D= Not a bad beer, but the oxidized/wood/paper notes in the aroma and flavor were disappointing.
