Looks clear and dark amber while pouring, but fills a Dogfish Head snifter murky old bronze (SRM 17-18). Some yeast likely migrated to the glass. A scant white head leaves spotty lace and a thin white film.

Bell Ringer is quite malty with some hop resin and pine straw. Caramel and honeydew melon add to a dark tea aroma.

Light bitterness and tea aromas translate directly to the flavor profile. So much so that it is all that I perceive long into the finish.

Alcohol is as expected in this medium-bodied Strong Ale. A silky texture and acrid notes are brought out with soft fine carbonation.

This beer was sampled both fresh and after 2 ½ -years-age. Neither version was particularly notable, however, age did clean up some muddled flavors and added to complexity and the aroma. Alcohol did tone down as well. Both versions scored similarly.
