22 oz. bottle. Cellared since 24 April 2013. Clearer Amber color with no head. Aroma is a good raisins, plum and date.
Body is medium with a lower carbonation level. Flavor is pretty dark fruit forward with a sugar sweet finish. The overall feel is exactly as it should be, ABV hidden nicely at this point with still a mild hop profile, please try surprised by this.
