look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a mild copper-amber. A bit light colored and only has a small halo of head immediately after the pour. Nice color, but the fact that it's a bit pale and the lack of foamy head detracts.

S - There is just a lack of smell on this. This particular bottle has been sitting in my cellar for a while due to overflow of beer. However, this has a very faint smell of caramel malts. The smell is lacking overall.

T - Well the taste more than makes up for the smell. The beginning is a sweet caramel, then it finishes with subtle hops. Delicious beer.

M - The mouthfeel is about what I would expect. A bit thick, and it swirls in my mouth without much carbonation. Great sipping beer as it warms.

Overall, this is a nice beer. I like it now with a few months of age on it, and I can see liking it fresh, too.
