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

Update: new tasting 0n 4/21/09 --> actually in great condition right now. good moment to drink. oxidation probably can fill out a bit more too before starting to go downhill, so dont worry yet about this beauty

A- poured a dark dark brown, with a fluffy tan head on top, the head slowly faded over a couple minutes, but still left pretty good lacing on top as well

S- massive delicious maltiness, good floral hops dark fruits?

T- heavy maltiness on the first sip, turns into a nice bitterness that isnt that sharp, but still strong in the hops, really smooth finish which is surprizing, pretty damn delicious

M- pretty haevy body, medium carbonation, flows over the tongue well, fades pretty quickly

D- more!!!!
