Having this about 10 months after its bottle date acquired in a trade. Pours a deep copper with a hint of red. Lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is nice and piney; also spicy - personally, I love this aroma. Taste is hints of pine, spice, malt - but it does taste a little bit old. Feel is medium with light-medium carbonation. Overall, I would like to try this fresher, as I enjoyed this very much , even after 10 months.

Poured out a clear, reddish amber color with a small, tan head of sudsy foam. It smelled very malty and piney. Strong roasty flavor, good piney bitterness.

Copper color, crystal clear. 2 fingers tall, frothy and off-white head. Diminishing to a small crown, decent lacing.
Nice fruity, moderate hop aroma upfront, some malty caramel.
Moderate bitterness and malty, caramel sweetness, pleasant moderate-high spicy hop flavor.
Medium body, oily, high carbonation, some sweetness lingering into a dry, long lasting finish, some alcohol in finish.

Tasty, well balanced
