22 ounce bottle Limited Edition No. 10 Spring 2013. Pours nicely with a good full head. Very dark amber. Nice taste, not as full body as I expected based on appearance but a fine smooth beverage. I liked the nice mild aftertaste the best. At 9.5 ABV this is a very good beer and would recommend although a little pricey. Slight update, just had my second 22 ounce bottle from the Spring 2013 stock I purchased that was date coded March 2013. Drank the second one today July 1 2013 from same stock that I purchased in April 2013. This second beer aged in our house in a comfortable environment. Even better than the high rating I gave before, but will not alter my ranking since it was already high and the beer is still pricey. BUT GET SOME AT LEAST IT IS GREAT!

A - Pours a cloudy brownish-red with a finger of frothy off-white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts, toasted coconut, brown and residual sugars, oak, vanilla, molasses, with a touch of dark fruit and booze.

T - Starts off with a mix of rich sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, toasted coconut, and vanilla. Through the middle, some oak and rum comes through with some more residual sugars, molasses, and a hint of dark fruit. The finish is a mix of sweet caramelized malts, brown sugar, toasted coconut, oak, vanilla, rum, and a bit of booze.

M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and warming finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice imperial brown ale with some great balance and complexity from the rum barrel aging.
