Pours a dark brown with a finger of fluffy bubbles that leave plenty of lacing behind. As one might expect, this is now smelling a bit past its prime... I get some vanilla and malt, but also some mustiness and a wee hint of butyric acid that is pretty off-putting for the style and additives. If I push past the bile, the first flavors I get are chocolate malt balls and almond extract. Quite sweet up front, but this fades to the background with later sips, which start to rediscover the ghost of cinnamon past, alongside a bit of tobacco and leather. Not worth holding onto any longer, but an interesting ageing experiment.

Dark brown color, 1/4" of tan head with decent retention and spotty lacing.

Smells of tobacco, coffee, and vanilla. Light spices.

Sweet and chocolatey, cinnamon, spices, and tobacco in the finish.

Mouthfeel is a little thin, light carbonation.

A decent beer with nice flavor, but lacks in mouthfeel.
