Growler fill from DeCicco's 8/24/10.. poured into DFH snifter.
Pours a deep, dark amber with reddish highlights. Not much head to speak of, with minimal lacing. Carbonation tickling the sides of the glass as it rises to a fine ring around the circumference. The aroma is supremely sweet and almost creamy with an inkling of floral hops. Caramel candies, spices, apple cider, honey and a subtle smoky-ness from the oak chips. Definite malt character. The taste isn't surprisingly in your face even though there is a lot here as far as aroma. The sweetness overall shines along with the oak and ABV. This is definitely a "strong ale." Finishes with a touch of bitterness which prevents it from being too cloying. The alcohol is fairly apparent, but I still think this is rather drinkable.
ps. American strong ales aren't exactly my favorite style of beer, but this was surely enjoyable!

12 oz bottle. Pour is mostly copper with red edges and a fairly tight tan head. Nose has a light malt base with hints of oak and a fair bit of green apple sweetness, acetaldehyde as I am to understand. Taste has a bit of oxidation, notes of oak and some boozy characteristics. Malt base is fairly rich and dry, a touch tart and definitely a bit off. Full bodied, dry finish, well carbonated.
