Musty Nose & woody, maybe even a slight sweet hint as well...even a touch of strawberry...and the nose grows fruitier and frutier. Beer pours amber/brown with a full sheet of head atop. Thick mouthfeel. Bitterness nice and strong. I sense some licorice notes here as well amongst the other musty, plasticy stuff going on.

750ml bottle 4/18/10 Bottle #1944 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-54° in English Pint-Pours a slightly hazy brown with a huge off white head. Aroma of oak, vanilla, caramel, and alcohol. Taste of caramel, sweetness, oak, brown sugar, and dried fruits. This full bodied brew is very well balanced and is very delicious. I believe it being aged has balanced and smoothed it out very nice.
