Bottle shared by Drew. Thanks! Pours a deep brown with reddish hints and a tan head. Nose is big bourbon and char. Some caramel and toast as well. Minimal hop aromatics, dominated by the char. On tasting, clean, touch of booze. Caramel and toast. Pretty solid as far as stock ales go. Should probably be reclassed as an old ale. Balanced.

Bottle. The pour is a bright reddish brown. The aroma is all malt and toffee. The drink is more toffee, light booze.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Darker brown, moderate frothy beige like head, fairly nice lacing.   Malty/biscuity nose, somewhat sweet, little hop to be seen.   Faint cocoa as well.   Malty tongue, definite biscuit, little hop presense, soft cocoa or chocolate notes.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   A bit more hop on the finish.   Malty, soft chocolate malts, like a very nice Brown Ale.   Clean, enjoyable, and tasty.

T: Minimal chocolate with some earthy green hops. Roasted malts with a little nuttiness. Slightly watery with a sweet malt palate.
M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation and a smooth, sweet finish.
O: Decent across the board, but lacking complexity. Slightly watery.

2012 bottle. Pours a dark amber-brown with an off-white head that leaves lacing. Aroma of malt, hops, caramel, grass, wood, yeast. Taste is crisp, starts with sweet malt and caramel, then picks up a hoppy, yeasty bite, with a hint of dark fruits. Lingering crisp malt and yeast that ends watery. Not bad, but not terribly interesting.
