2010 22 oz bottle from the brewery. Pours dark reddish amber with thick white head. Aroma is aged oaky malts with faint floral sweetness. Taste is big malty body balanced with honey sweetness and bitter pine and grapefruit hop notes. Strong, aged winter beer. Not extreme, but well balanced.

asedzie (807) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 5, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2017 Bottle from Burien Liquor and Wine. Nice pour - deep amber with off white head. Nose has caramel, nuttiness, prickly alcohol heat and very mild fruity hop resins. Flavor is toffee with a light alcohol burn on the finish, very nice creamy malt texture makes this enjoyable. Finish has lingering alcohol and some bitterness. Very nice warmer, bold winter sipper in an unassuming package.

Shippy (43) - - JAN 16, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with an orange hue. Smell starts with dark fruits, maybe some fig or dates, followed by a bit of vanilla and some smokiness. Flavors start with sweet malts, some honey, then drift in a smokier direction with nuttiness and some spice on the end. Feel is medium with a little carbonation. Overall a nice winter warmer, would be nice to have sitting next to a fire.

DYCSoccer17 (3664) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 22, 2015
14 ounce on tap at Sharps Roasthouse near Seatac. The aroma is a little metallic with light caramel and toffee hints. Mildly hazy amber body with a strong yellowish head present. Starts with just a sweet barrage of malts. I get a lot of caramel malts primarily with a little nuttiness behind. Fairly sweet throughout. Easy drinking, and alcohol is well hidden.
