4.13/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Date: 01/31/2012
Type: 12oz. Bottle
Glass: Half Acre Tulip
Vintage: 2008, Personally Aged

Excited to see how this one has developed over the past 3 or so years in the cellar.

Pours a brown mahoghany in color w/ a 1/2 finger tan head that leaves light sticky lacing. Aromas of caramel, toffee, and slight dark fruits. The taste starts off w/ sweet caramel/toffee up front, transitioning into warm brown sugar and mild dark fruits, and finishes w/ mild hop bitterness. Medium bodied and lush w/ low levels of carbonation. Very easy to drink for the ABV.

Overall, this one had come along nicely! The hops have almost completely fallen off on the finish and a mild dark fruit characteristic has developed in the middle.

Serving type: bottle
