22 oz bottle, no date, but I'm assuming it's a 2011 bottle, and the brewery's website indicates a yearly February release.

appears a cloudy dark brown, with amber highlights at the edges of the glass. thin off-white colored head. strong aroma of sweet caramel malt with a touch of hops. very appetizing.

taste is big malt, as expected - toffee, bready, brown sugar. but not overly sweet, and balanced by a little hop finish. coats the mouth, but not too thick. just enough carbonation, so it drinks smooth.

a nice cold season beer, another Southern Tier success!
