2011 vintage poured into tulip. A huge thank you to Eric for this one. Thanks TurdFurgison!

A: Pours a deep mahogany color with a thin, active, dark tan head that quickly faded to nothing.
S: Super potent and sweet notes of sticky sweet malts, candied dates, and raisins. Slightly notes of wood, faint oxidization, and slight chocolate and dark spice come through as well.
T: caramel, leather, raisin, and tobacco are easily noticeable. Sticky malt dominates are there is a woody quality to the brew. The finish is full of molasses and slight oxidization, and the aftertaste has a touch a bread crust, spice, and powdery chocolate.
M: Full body, boozy but not hot, low but tingly carbonation, sticky and viscous mouthfeel. A but fizzy and lighter than a equally as boozy stout. Sweet, but the finish is actually pretty drying.
O: A sticky sweet malt bomb that was complex and smooth enough to be interesting, but became a bit of a chore halfway through the bottle. Good for what it is though, thanks again Eric!

12 Fluid Ounce bottle
Served in a pilsner glass
Bottled in 2011

A - It has a ruddy brown body with burnt orange highlights. It is topped with less than an inch of tan head.

S - It has a dark fruit aroma. I get some dates and figs. It smells sweet as well.

T - The taste is all malt. I get some dates and molasses. The alcohol is well hidden. I'm sure 2-3 years has helped that aspect.

M - Medium and smooth.

O - This is a malt bomb. It is high in alcohol and high is sweet malty flavors. I like it. I think is has aged wonderfully and developed into a very good beer.
