Pouring a 4 year old 12 oz bottle into a snifter. This has been in my cellar since I received it from a friend. The beer pours a rich mahogany color with minimal creamy beige head that foams up and fades to an edge layer fairly rapidly after the pour. ONe large wispy island remains as I sample.
Aroma is caramel and toffee and maple syrup, or at least the sweetness of syrup. No booze or hops to pick up here and even the scents I do detect are mild.
First sip reveals very fine and tingly carbonation with a thinner body than expected and a bit of a sticky texture.
Flavor is sweet malt from start to finish. Caramel and brown sugar mixed together and not too much more. This isnt cloying or overly sweet, but not much complexity either. I find it easy to drink and enjoyable but it isnt in the top tier of dopplebocks either. I would drink this again, but wouldnt hunt it down if it comes back from the brewery.
