Decided to finally crack open my bottle after seeing the thread that this is going downhill really fast. Never tried it fresh and traded for it >6 months ago. Poured into Lawson's tulip, served at cellar temparature.

A- Pours a dark but translucent ruby red/mahogony brown with about a half finger of brownish/yellowish slightly yeasty looking off-white head that has about average retention and recedes to a flat top leaving some light spotty lacing. Not overly carbonated, but nice consistency.

S- Dark fruits of cherries, raspberries, plums, grapes, chardonnay, and a nice rich malt backbone. Fairly aromatic and smells fairly pleasant with absolutely no alcohol present. For a strong ale the nose on this is fantastic.

T- Dark fruits, cherries, plums, molasses, raisins, dark malts, finishes with cherries and plums with a hint of alcohol and a faint presence of oxidation. I never had this fresh, but I can't imagine this has gone downhill too much since being released. All the flavors were still nicely pronounced and the slight oxidation didn't detract too much from the beer.

M- Very smooth for a strong ale, medium bodied, fairly low carbonation, light syrupiness that doesn't impede drinkability at all.

O- I decided to finally crack this open after never having had it fresh and I wasn't dissapointed at all. There was a hint of oxidation but plenty of flavor (especially in the nose) of dark fruits, molasses, etc.- pretty much everything that I love in a strong ale. It might just be personal preference, but I don't mind a bit of oxidation. This beer is still definitely worth checking out but I don't think it will improve much.

Appearance. Pours a deep brown with some nice red at the edges and topped with almost a finger of orange-tan head.

Smell. Caramel, red wine, a little cherry and chocolate.

Taste. Caramel, raisins, coffee, red wine and dark berries, woody vanilla, slight oxidation.

Mouthfeel. Fuller body, sticky on the lips, low carbonation.

Overall. This one was a little oxidized. I thought it was built for the long haul, but I'm glad I didn't wait any longer to drink it.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass

A- pours a very dark red, nearly black, with a paper thin offwhite head that looks pretty much nonexistent. Disappointing

S- booze. Just straight booze. Even at two years out, this smells hot as hell

T- cherries, red wine, tobacco. Not exactly exploding with flavor, but it's clearly a very nuanced beer that may have sat for a little too long.

M- medium bodied. Body isn't as thick as I'd expect. Nice

O- this beer confuses me. I don't know what it wants to be, but then again, the generic "strong ale" category lets it be whatever it wants for the mostpart
