Poured from the tap.

The beer poured a very nice looking clear copper-ish colour.

There were clear notes of malts, cinnamon, and other earthy spices t the nose.

The beer tasted very balanced with malts, cinnamon, orange, with a spiced-hop finish. Very mild and pleasing.

Would I buy it again? Yes.

Served in a snifter at Firkin.

Apparently, Dave had kept this keg in his cooler for about three years. Fair enough, man. This stuff pours a midnight garnet-brown topped by a finger of sandstone foam. The nose comprises walnut, oak, very light roasted malts, and toasted malts. The taste brings in more of the same, with more toast, a touch more roast, lots of oak, some dark chocolate powder, and some light molasses in the background. That oak is certainly dominant. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, this stuff is just too oaky for its own good, perhaps a symptom of its greater-than-usual age. Still, not a bad beer, just one that doesn't seem to have held up.
