At the brewery. Really hazy, small but stable off white head. Malty rich barley wine-like aroma, slight inoffensive phenols. The hops have really faded, making it simply strong, intense.

Hazy and murky amber colour. Sweetish, minty and lightly floral. Decent bitterness and some muddled yeastiness. They are aging some of this and I think that will help bring some of these flavours together.
