Bottle from 2007, Enjoy by 11/15/12 date stamped on it.

A- Pours a slightly translucent dark brown with some yeast sediment floating around the bottom, decent head and still seems to be holding some carbonation (3.5)

S- Dark fruits, cherries, dark malts, definite oxidation of dry cardboard, paper bag, old barley. Overall pretty nice but definitely falling off a bit (3.75)

T- Barley, dark malts, cherries, slight bit of oxidation with hints of cardboard, hints of coffee, finishes with a bit of toffee, caramel, barley, and light dark fruits. Decently complex, holding up well, but definitely falling off a bit (4)

M- Very smooth, not too much carbonation, almost no alcohol present (4.25)

O- This beer is holding up decently well but for 7 years old it's definitely falling off a tiny bit. I'd say it probably reached it's peak a couple years ago as marked by the enjoy by date. It's still very enjoyable and extremely smooth for 11%. For picking this up off the shelf recently for $5 I'd say it was a steal.
