Bottled is aged -- best by 11/21/13, so this one probably is a year old!

Pours a deep, deep amber -- almost opaque even. Rich head of tan foam, and nice lattice lacing.

Nose is malty and grainy, with a little diacetyl, and certainly some caramel malts. Pretty typical of the style.

Flavor is rich and malty, with plenty of toasty grains and a heavy body that typifies such a heavy beer alcohol-wise. Tangy bitter touch at the finish. Overall, a surprisingly solid beer for it's age, and quite a big brew.
