2002 release. Very nice looking brew. A dark, dark red body, almost brown, very much like the color of a barleywine. The head is light tan (also like barleywine) and retains exceptionally. Aroma is that of pine and Christmas tree-like hops, very nice touch, I was waiting for a Christmas beer that was hopped like this. Combined with that is a toasted malt, making a very unique aroma. Just a touch of fruitiness is in there as well. As for the flavors, wow, this is very unique as well. The hops are definitely American-style, while the malt is very English. Hops are more spicy here, with the Christmas tree/pine character being more of an undertone. A bit of citrus is noticeable as well. The malt is toasted, sweet, and bread-like. In addition to all of that, I'm getting some dried fig. Excellent beer, very drinkable. Definitely much more than I was expecting from it. I'll definitely have this again, and again, and again...

review from yesterday:

Enjoy By 2/21/14. I guess I'm about a month out....
Very dark, nut Brown, almost transparent. Small head, tan, creamy.
Aroma is slightly nutty, some spice, although it says there isn't any.
Taste is bread and caramel up front, sweet, then some hop bitterness to follow.
Kind of thin, especially for a 7.2% abv, but decent. leaves a bitter aftertaste with some kind of spice on the roof of the mouth.
