This beer should age well, but is not worth the price so I’ll probably never know.
750 mL bottle. Pours cloudy tawny with a large, frothy, light brown head, mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt -cookie, caramel, toffee-, average hops -flowers, perfume-, average yeast -dough, leaves- with notes of alcohol, dates, apples, wood, and vanilla. Full bodied, sticky and alcoholic texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, heavy sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2008

Bottle… Cloudy caramel-colored ale with a mid-sized, wispy, off-white head. The bouquet is all about oak and nutty caramel. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and busy carbonation. Caramel sweetness, woody earthiness and low bitterness. Crisp, lingering, toffee finish. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2009
