Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of caramel malts, some pine. Taste is piney hops up front, caramel malts at the finish, smooth and tasty. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality beer worth trying.

A: slight haze; amber colored with orange highlights at the edges; 1 finger light brown head that receded to a splotchy cap; nice lacing;

S: intense pine with caramel in the background;

T: more pine than caramel to the middle, then more caramel with a dose of herbal character there as well through the finish; mild to moderate bitterness at the end;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish; hides the ABV well;

O: very smooth and delicious;

A 10/2013 bottle in a Duvel on 12/31/2016. Really held up well. Very tasty, balanced, and not boozy or a malt bomb. Goes down easy and smooth still at this age. Glad I got to keep it for tonight.
