12 oz best by 1/21/09.
Let it warm to the appropriate temperature, then poured it into a large red wine glass, minimal head except for a ring around the top. Ruby in color, fairly clear body.
Strong smell, maybe helped by the glass. Pomegranates, caramel malts, toasted whole wheat bread, and a splash of sugary red wine. A bit of candied fig and some spice that could be noble hops.
Sweet and toasty with a hefty load of esters. Nice funkiness, even a little sourness. Some nutmeg and vanilla. Significant amount of noble hop bittering, shows up in the middle of the taste and powers through on the finish along with alcohol and a chemical off-note (might be less noticeable at colder temps).
Creamy, medium weight mouthfeel. Gentle, light carbonation, finish is a little harsh and unpleasant.
Definitely drink this one a little colder than recommended, has some harsh flavors that conflict with one another as it warms. Interesting, though... had no trouble finishing the six pack.

The beer is slightly hazy, with a deep amber body and a reddish cast beneath a short but creamy head of white foam. The nose is offers a combination of delicately toasty and straw-like grain with caramel and slight fruitiness. The body is medium-light with a zesty, very-fine bubbled carbonation. The flavor starts with bold, toasty and caramel malts upfront, followed by a splash of fruit (sour cherry, tangerine, plum) that fades into a rather dry finish. Mouthfeel is medium to light. The beer reminds me of a toastier and drier Irish ale. I loved it.
