2012 Vintage on tap poured into a snifter.

A: burnt amber but clear. Very little head with some lacing.

S: malty sweetness. It's decently subtle but so e oaky/woody underneath.

T: malt heavy and glorious at that. The alcohol is hidden very well. Sweet caramels and burnt wood.

M: moderately bubbly in the mouth, it coats the mouth well but doesn't outlast it's welcome.

O: Numbskull is great to start out with, the barrel aging makes it even better. Well balanced malt and sweetness forward with some smooth finish.
