Tried it on a cold, boring night when I was itching for a winter ale. Half of it still went down the drain.

2006 bottle poured into my De Struise glass...A dark mahoany that is almost clear, very dark in the middle. A huge light tan head rises about four fingers. There is great retention, half the head falls fass, but a full two finger frosting like cap stick around. GREAT lacing. Certainly looks the part...The aroma is ROUGH with a capital R. Way too sweet with toffee then plums and winter spice. It teases because at first its almost nice, but its inappropriately strong. Weirdly reminds me of Lime Gatorade, how?...The taste is equally poor. Its incredily light in taste after how strong the aroma is. The feel is way to light, almost water. The taste is light toffee, coffee, gatorade, with chalk and alcohol.

This is horrible and needs to be dumped, even more opening it.

A little bit too toasty,smokey for my taste. Probably a great beer for someone else, but not my style.

I hate to write bad posts, especially since I am new, but this beer is horrible. I do not understand how people can drink this beer. It has a very sharp, bitter, sour taste, with no real redeeming qualities.

A: It has a common pour from this style of beer.

S: I knew it was not going to be pleasant, too many conflicting textures.

T: I could barely make it thru a bottle. I would say I had this 5 years ago, but it has burned a horrible memory in my mind.

M: Quite pungent.

D: I refuse this beer whenever it is offered. I would rather go sober than drink this beer again.
