This 2005 brew came in a trade, though I have no idea who sent it.

A: Pours a very deep red color with a very small head. Some lacing is left but not much more.

S: Nice pine hops noted are a strong nose of deep dark charred oak. Very nice and inviting.

T: This one has a few years age on it. The hops have died down to a very mild level. This one is now dominated by tons of malty sweetness and tons of oak.

M: Medium bodied, yet smooth.

D: The alcohol is noticeable in this othewise thick brew.

Overall: A really nice sipping beer. I wish I had had fresh to see what age has done to this one.
