look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

2011 bottle.

A- Pours with very little tan head that dissipates quickly. Dark reddish brown in color.

S- Bready malts, caramel, alcohol, some dark fruit.

T- Super malty and sweet. Some toffee and roastiness coming through. Bit of booziness. There's a slight hop bitterness remaining after a year in the bottle.

M- Full, thick, sticky. I feel the alcohol on the finish. This is a winter warmer for sure.

O- Pretty tasty beer that I remember being much hoppier when fresh. A year has turned this into a barleywine/old ale of sorts. I might go back and pick up some more bottles to see if the alcohol will fade with some more age.
