No dating, but purchased 2005 in PA- so should be this years...
Clear and light chestnut, some carbonation seen rising with just a tad of khaki head in a dusting and thick ring. Caramelly, molassess, buttery and sugar... Very nice and heavy/thick/chewy aroma. Very full mouthfeel. Smooth and sikly, the carbonation is just barely noticeable, just feels like it gently comes to life in your mouth with touch of foam. Bite of hoppy pepperyness with a bit of caramel malt flavor, nice darkened toast taste with grapefruit rind. Flavors are left in your mouth at the end of the sip for a good while. Catching a bit of fruityness -bit of orange peel -maybe clementines- in the flavor. Very drinkable, nice session, a lot of good flavor and feel without being too intense too compete with a good meal.

Pours a transparent copper color with a substantial head of sudsy, khaki foam. Aroma is pleasantly light and fruity, consisting of lemon grass, banana, clove, and grassy hops.
The taste features a light caramel malt up front along with a healthy kick of grassy hops that make way for an equally potent kick of peppery/herbal hops. A grain husk musk shores up the back end. The peppery hops are the clear focal point here, as they practically sizzle on the back of the tongue whilst the other flavors recede. It's an interesting sensation, albeit a little heavy-handed. The mouthfeel is a little thin, perhaps passably semi-creamy, propped up by some perky carbonation.
Overall, this is an interesting and flavorful brew. The closest analogue I can muster is Domaine Dupage, although the flavors here are more coarse and strident. It's not something I would seek out to enjoy, but it's worth trying.
