2010 stored in cellar, poured @ cellar temp into NB Snifter

A - Pours a deep clear garnet w/ a thick frothy 2 finger tan head, slow fades to a thick cap that leaves great lacing.

S - Smells of big sweet caramel malts, toffee, raisins and plums, resiny, and pine cones, grapefruits, and spicy alcohol.

T - Tastes mirror the nose, chocolate, toffee, deep caramels, resinious, spicy alcohol, dark fruits.

M - Full body, sweet and smooth w/ a deep bitterness that lingers in the finish, definitely aged well as fresh the bitterness is very harsh.

O - Very complex, deep, rich & bitter. Age has done this beer well.
