Taste is sweet, bitter, very tiny sour, malty, fruity and tiny spicy. Mouthfeel is round, tiny dry, tiny tart, tiny boozy and medium bodied.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared with drsordr and Corey. Pours a slightly hazy dark caramel brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have quite a bit of oxidation at this point that works pretty well with the sweet malts, caramel, and fruit character in the beer. I had this a few years back, more in its prime and it was a different beer, I still could drink this, but it is a different beer.
