Rich honey and malt aroma off a very fluffy light tan head. A reddish brown full-bodied pour, 1845 is sweet, malty, and very smooth. It clings to the glass for dear life, and finishes with a nice bittering hop that is well balanced and very pleasing. Because of the bottle conditioning, I get some yeasty notes, but also some citrus, dark fruit, chocolate and toffee. Very nice! Tasted @ 60F.
This beer is a throw-back to the middle of the 19th Century, conditioned for 2 weeks before filtering, re-pitched with fresh yeast, and bottled.
