Vintage 2011.

Poured from the 22 oz,. bomber into a Lawson's snifter.

a: Clear dark ruby/copper with no head, thin surface foam disappeared to almost nothing. No lacing.

s: Slight dark fruit note.

t: Dark fruit/roasty malt combo, at first the net effect was prunelike. Mellowed out later to a mild dark fruity/roastiness. Some evident hop balance. Sweet to dry finish,.

m: Light to moderate. Considerable persistent carbonation tingle on the tongue.

o: A good bock, drinkable and seems pretty true to the style. Unclear what its age might have done for or against it, my guess would be not much,.

From the 2013 batch. Sampled on December 30, 2013.

It pours brown with an off-white head and some bits of sediment found at the bottom of the bottle.

Vanilla and caramel malts are the lead in aromas with a hint of nuts and just a nip of spice. Mile earthy hops. But there is also a kind of goaty ester on the nose that rubbed me the wrong way.

Medium body.

The taste tends to favor the nutty side more than the malty side with a slightly bitter finish.

The beer is full of nutty vanilla and toffee aromas. It pours a deep cloudy amber color, with minimal head that dissipates quickly. Medium sweetness up front and a lightly bitter finish. It has medium body a thin feel and soft carbonation. It is kind of weird to be drinking a Vermont Christmas beer in Hawaii during February but it paired well with some sharp Vermont Cheddar and definitely hit the spot.
