This review is for the 2004 edition 750ml bottle. I have had this brew twice before, once in the big bottle(2003) and once on tap (pre-BA). Both were better. This review reflects more of an average of the three in the numbers but the words are strictly for this session.
Pours a nice, cloudy orangish-red with a light tan head that starts big and drops evenly, leaving spotty lace.
Smell is malty, oak, sweet, fruity, peat, and a light smoke hint.
Taste is malt, oak, a general sweetness and alcohol. Not nearly as smooth as the previous quaffings. Balance is off somewhat and the complexity is down from before as well.
Mouthfeel is not as smooth as before, medium/full body with light effervescence all over the mouth.
Drinkability is fairly high, I will drink it again but not this 2004 edition.
