Aged for about a year under less than ideal conditions.

Appearance:
The beer pours a light tannish head that stays afterwards. The beer iteslf is a clear dark amber that is almost brown by the looks of it.

Smell:
A strong boozy and sweet malty smell. My nose picks up the scent from quite a distance. Some of the hop smell is there but it's slight.

Taste:
Sweet malt taste dominates the tongue but still has hints of hops with a hint of booze. The beer is also a little sugary but certainly more sweet.

Mouthfeel:
Biting carbonation and heavy bodied but also smooth and a little sticky afterwards.

Overall:
A very good beer and one that I look forward to every year. Apparently, accidentally aging it makes it even better.
