veru nice beer, laready had a few of these and aging helps. with time it has more balance. i think ill keeps some more for 6 more months and a year.. Its a nice brown ale, some hints of sweet red wine, a little bit of oak. medium body. once served it takes a bit to get tasty. i think its better served very cold and wait a few minutes with the glass on your hands
