2012 version – aged just about two years when I sampled it.

Pours brown in color with copper edges and a finger of beige head that dissipates rather quickly. The nose is an exceptional blend of maltiness and breadiness. The flavor follows the nose. The mouthfeel is sticky and hearty. Sweet notes come on in the finish along with a mild but clearly out-of-place tartiness.
