Bottled January 2011, I believe. Enjoyed 2 December 2011, reviewed from notes.

Pours a deep dark brown, much darker than I expected. Clear at the edges, and light reveals a chocolate brown color with reddish highlights. Massive creamy yellow-tan head, very slowly relaxes to a nice cap. Little lacing

Smell is deep, smooth, and delicious. It starts out powerfully yeasty and bready, but as the head relaxes, the sweeter malts come through. Brown sugar, figs, and a touch of cocoa. So much going on, and all in perfect balance.

Waves of flavor flooding through one after another. Starts out rather light and wheaty, then a load of sugary fruity malts come pouring in. A pinch of clove comes through late, adding yet another layer to the already complex flavor.

This has one of the most unique mouthfeels I've ever encountered, and it's exquisite. It's surprisingly light for such a strong beer, and the carbonation is incredibly buoyant. The beer feels like it fluffs up in the mouth, becoming spongy and foamy, carrying the flavors away. Magnificent. I'd give it a 6 if I could.

The key word for this beer is depth. It has so much, in the appearance, the smell, and the taste. And despite all that, it has a refreshingly light mouthfeel that keeps it from being burdensome or weighty. A very impressive beer.

The bottle in question was cellared for about two years. It may be handy when shopping for a bottle to know many currently on the shelves of stores are already somewhat aged.

The beer pours a murky shade of brown that makes one think of staring into a muddy pond. It gave an off-white head that had some staying power and left some lacing.

A smooth and sweet malty aroma tickled the sense of smell on initial observation. It is only a gateway to the sweet malty flavor to come. Though this is very warming, one must also note that the beer it smooth, thick, and even chewy. The after effect is a warming sensation that charts the path to your belly.

Clearly, this is a sipper to be enjoyed with friends. If you drink too much on your own, you risk losing appreciation of the beer.
