Born on Feb. 14,2014. Valentine's Day. 8 months old.

a: Clear very dark ruby. Half finger thick tan head receded to even surface foam and dense lacing.

s: I'm getting lots of caramel malt. Veddy British.

t: Taste is porterish smoky malt at first with considerable hop/alcohol bite on top. Bitterness lingers but ends up finishing sweet to dry. Later the smoky flavor fades in favor of mild dark caramel malt.

m: Light to medium, good body, plenty of carbonation tingle.

o: A pleasing, flavorful brew, wickedly easy-drinking for an 8.5% . If bitterness is all ascribed to hops rather than alcohol, the high ABV here would be virtually unnoticeable.

Thanks to rorjets for thie mini-vertical on this one. This particular bottle was born 2014-02.

Roasted, mild coffee aroma with a smidgen of hops. Taste starts with that familiar roasted malt then comes caramel and toffee after. Not too sweet, a tame beast but chock full of flavor.
