Pulled this out of my.. cellar for a marathon beer tasting session. Live review.
Cloudy ruby into my pint glass. Nice head. Little lacing.
Sweet malty nose. hint of alcohol. Apples.
More apples on the mouth. I think this bottle is far past its prime. Bitterness there, but not much hop flavor.
Medium mouthfeel. Coats the palate.
Overall I think I blew it by aging this too long. I thought it would be ok, given the alcohol level. After reading other reviews, it seems like I'm missing out on a lot of hop flavor.
