Had on tap in imperial half pint glass at Hopleaf in Chicago. Heard great things about this beer and thought it would be right up my alley. Was not disappointed. Pours beautiful dark woody red that is transparent. 1/4 head that held onto the sides of the glass nicely. Nice sharp citrus hops with a tinge of alcohol and then the sugars followed by a bite of pine. Great smooth drinking with balance of sweet, sour, spice that I loved.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottled is aged -- best by 11/21/13, so this one probably is a year old!
Pours a deep, deep amber -- almost opaque even. Rich head of tan foam, and nice lattice lacing.
Nose is malty and grainy, with a little diacetyl, and certainly some caramel malts. Pretty typical of the style.
Flavor is rich and malty, with plenty of toasty grains and a heavy body that typifies such a heavy beer alcohol-wise. Tangy bitter touch at the finish. Overall, a surprisingly solid beer for it's age, and quite a big brew.
