This was bottled on 11/07/11 and enjoyed a little over a year later, on 12/25/12.
I’m eager to try it with some time on it.
The beer pours a malty caramel color with light foam. I’m drooling already!
It has a simply amazing aroma to boot—I pick up on a combination of coconut—raw and toasted— and toffee. In the absence of a noticeable hop presence I find a light orange marmalade note to it.
The flavor still has a piney bitterness to it that comes across upfront. It’s sweet and chewy with a lingering bitterness on the finish. I get some more toasted coconut & caramel & pine & some orange marmalade notes on the palate. Somewhere I think there’s even hints of tobacco and leather as it warms and opens. Simply fantastic brew. Remained nice and effervescent even after a year. Really solid beer—this sets the benchmark even higher.

Appearance has a murky reddish-brown beer with a small tan head. Retention and lacing are low.
Smells are of rich malts, brown bread, caramel, chocolate, molasses and dark fruits.
The taste has notes of oak, vanilla and molasses, plus woody hop character. It also has a tannic quality that adds some acidity and bitterness.
Mouthfeel has a lively carbonation and a medium body. The finish has flavors of dark fruit sweetness and more of the tannins that adds acidity.
Overall a nice nightcap of a beer but the tannins were a negative.
