Bottled 11/22/10 (9 months prior to tasting)
A- Slightly hazy, but bright copper with a creamy off-white head that sticks around, leaving behind sticky sheets of lace.
N- Sweet honey baked bread with subtle nuttiness and a vague fruitiness to it. Rich oak with soft vanilla accents. There's also some nice earthy, floral fumes on the back end. Smells delicious.
T- Rich bready maltiness with a touch of caramel, plenty of oak, smooth grassy/herbal bitterness, and fruity esters from the yeast. Herbal spiciness adds a nice touch. There's a tiny amount of oxidation which gives the beer some pleasant sherry notes. Long smooth finish with lots of complexity. I'm getting oak, grass, herbs, sherry, bready malt, and caramel.
M- Medium-light bodied, smooth and creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, and a semidry finish.
D- Overall, this beer is best when fresh, but I recommend buying enough that you can age at least 2 or 3 of them. Delicious no matter what.
