Aroma is earthiness, roasted malts, clove, citrus, very faint funk, caramel and yeast. Taste is a well balanced deep maltiness and hop profile. Very pleasant. The bitterness fades surprisingly fast. Appearance is a hazy orange with a medium head that retains very well.

fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle just bought today at Value On Liquor Store, Vancouver; unfortunately it says Feb 2014, so this beer is at least 1½ years old; batch 124
It pours a beautiful amber color, hazy, with medium sized head. As now it’s expected, from the color we get that the flavor indeed rests on cereals and caramel, from the date that the hop aromatic components are lost. Good beer, obviously not what it was supposed to be though.

This bottle has a BBE label on the bottom of the bottle; it’s not the worst solution, some put it on the cap, some with unreadable ink on brown glass, but it’s also not the first place to look for; take example from Stone Enjoy By, the date is the most visible thing on the label!
