A 22 ounce bottle sealed with purple wax, suggesting a 2008 vintage. Big thanks to kruthar for this overly generous extra! Review is from notes taken on my birthday back in May 2011.
The body is a hazy copper to the point of being opaque with orange hues around the edges of the glass. About an inch of foamy, tan head grows before receding quickly to a patch of bubbles that remains throughout the drink. Smells of hazelnut, caramel, malt, faint wheat and rye, and dark fruits. Tastes similar, with an emphasis on the hazelnut, malts, wheat, and an almost woody taste; initial thoughts suggest a gin barrel, as there are some piney/juniper undertones. Sugar and straw flavors finish this beer. Mouth is smooth and crisp, held together by a dry caramel finish. Overall, a great beer with just the right amount of age on it; I would love to have this again.
