Poured from bottle 3/13/15.

Not sure if this was a poorly cellared bottle or perhaps not meant for aging but got an awful coppery/metallic/zinc finish on the taste. Not enjoyable at all. I have a bottle of my own that I'll open soon to see if it was a bad bottle or a wider issue.

Pours a nice, soapy, off-white head that laces nicely. Floral hop aroma behind sweet, slightly toasted malt. Deep, burnt umber color. A medium bitterness with toasted malt behind the sweetness. Lingering bitterness over lightly toasted malt. The sweetness has a nice banana-like aspect to it.

Not bad, but not really a favorite style of mine. I feel silly rating this because I'm just not a fan of this style.

Edit: I will agree with a previous reviewer that this gets much nicer as it warms.
