3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 1895 of 2007
The beer appears hazy and reddish brown hued, with a half inch of tan head. The aroma consists of caramels, malt, molasses and alcohol. The flavor is nice, with a prominent showing of caramel candies, though not too sweet. The feel is medium bodied, with the alcohol presence having been tamed by the aging process. A smooth and mellow ride at 11% abv, this brew ages well. I would buy / drink it again.
