3.55/5 rDev -10.4%

Bomber into a pint glass. Pretty sure this bottle is at least an 09, possibly older.
Super creamy 1-2cm tan head, excellent retention. Amber/brown body, doesn't look cloudy but can't see through. Great lacing.
Aroma is pungent; can smell this from a few feet away. Faded hop aroma, lots of sweetness.
Slight leathery, decent balance between bitterness and sweetness. Some oxidation notes. Long lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel is very creamy, with a light alcohol bite.
Overall this is a good beer, seemingly lacking in complexity and overall enjoyment despite its amazing appearance and alluring smell.
