Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear amber color with a thin soapy head. The aroma was sweeter caramel, ripe fruits and yeast. The flavor has sweet caramel, doughy malts, ripe fruits, decent. The mouthfeel is smooth and somewhat viscous. Good to try once.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very similar to the 2008, with cognac, chocolate and nougaty butter. Appearance is ruddy brown with tan head. Flavor matches the nose, but much more sweet than the 2008, and also with more citrus hop presence. A newer beer that still will benefit from additional age, but very nice now.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(500ml bottle #3174 thanks to blutt59) Bright orange. Smell matches the appearance with lots of orange. Taste has more malt, graham cracker. A good bit of alcohol, could probably use some more age to tone down the alcohol.
