1 liter flip top brow bottle with a vintage date.
Right away you can tell this beer is bottle condition, as I poured it into my .5 Liter mug a whole lot of tiny bubbles started to form slowly and gain momentum enough to provide a think three fingers of lace. Reddish amber color is pretty damn clear, no hop haze or floaties at all. Orange rind and tobacco, perhaps a little bit of leather from the hop nose ... small kernel of toasted grain and nutty yeast when sniffing a little deeper. Extremely smooth with a solid medium body. Hops and malt battle it out from start to finish. Hop bitterness grows a little more with each sip and the alcohol sneaks in warmth as well. Maltiness tries hard to fend off with toasted bread and caramel flavors. Hops drive hard with citric and mint. Peach fruitiness in the bitter sweet finish.
A love big reds, especially reds that have a ton of hops and the malt to back it up. Very nice ...

Bottled on 9/26/13.
Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, brown sugar, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earth and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with very earth forward aromas and flavors.
