The beer is from 2010.Poured into a pint glass at 47 degrees. A vigourous pour produced a light tan head that is foamy and billowy. The head has poor retention and just melt to a little foam island on the beer. The color of the beer is rich dark redwood color. The beer is opaque with some carbonation bubble.

N: A rich malty beer with spices, vanilla, fruit cake, yeast, biscuits, brown sugar, and caramel.

T: A mellow malt profiles, spices, vanilla, wood, coffee, biscuits, yeast, molasses, and caramel.

M: A thin and watery beer with some carbonation.

This is just okay, the beer is too thin for a winter water, I would expect a little bit of chewy and richer malt profile like the nose had. Disappointing.

This pours brilliant chestnut under a thin cream colored foam cap. Caramel and toffee flavors and aromas meet big alcohol for a satiating, fulfilling and warming after dinner drink. Soft carbonation and medium full body.
