noticed the "best after april 2010" after I cracked this, oh well... oak is quite heavy on the aroma, mixed with luscious sweet malts, fruity esters and a touch of alcohol. Flavors are much the same but more pronounced. appropriate bitterness, carbonation and mouthfeel. good stuff, but should have kept it another year I think.

Sammy (11487) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2016
2010 edition. Ageing, despite promises by the brewer, is pot luck. There is the remnant of an interesting beer here, but some skunking in the taste and smell, despite my best efforts.

Bottle shared with Gus on "Fuck it Sunday." Aroma is caramel, toffee, dark fruit, bourbon, barrel, really nice. Appearance is reddish brown, light tan head. Taste is caramel, butterscotch, toffee, earthy hops, bourbon, barrel, subdued but good. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, caramel hop dry aftertaste. Overall, this is drinking real nice.
