2012 vintage.

S- Caramel and toffee. A little booze. Some vanilla.

T- Similar to the nose. Smooth and balanced. Caramel and toffee, just a little booze. Some vanilla.

F- It's fine. Smooth, medium thickness. Slight alcohol burn. Decent carb.

O- Solid and tasty. Good balance and easier to drink than you would expect at 12%.

2012 vintage. Not sure if it wasn't cellared properly, but it was horrible. I brought it to a bottle share and we couldn't even finish it, it was so bad. I was told that the 2012 were in their prime right now, hope this was a fluke...

2012 vintage. Exceptional beer. Dark amber pour that smells of vanilla bean, caramel, and molasses. Mellowed flavor but very sweet. Easy drinking ale for what it is. Perfect for a cold winter day.
