750 ml bottle, bottled January 2013, poured into a snifter.

A- Pours a dark brown color with a gigantic off-white head, great retention and lacing.

S- Lots of bready malts and yeast along with a nice amount of caramel and dark fruit, which are sweet but don't overpower the maltiness. A bit of spiciness as well.

T- Similar to the aroma, with lots of slightly sweet breadiness, caramel, and fruit.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth, soft, creamy feel, just a tiny bit of boozy warmth at the end.

O- A classic beer, very tasty, highly drinkable, and it's cheap and you can get it almost anywhere.
