look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

750 ml bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, raisin, plum, red grape, brandy, vanilla, light oak, herbal, yeast/oak earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast ester, and light-moderate oak notes; with solid strength. Taste of big caramel, toast, toffee, vanilla, raisin, plum, red grape, brown sugar, biscuit, oak, herbal, light chocolate, and oak/yeast earthiness. Slight earthy tannic bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, vanilla, raisin, plum, red grape, brown sugar, biscuit, oak, herbal, light chocolate, and oak/yeast earthiness. Very nice complexity of dark/bready malt, fruit yeast ester, and brandy oak spiral flavors; with a great malt/oak flavor balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth, fairly slick, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good oak aged strong ale. All around nice balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, brandy oak, and fruity/earth yeast flavors; and smooth to sip on for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.
