Beer Tasting: Victory Ten Years Alt

Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep the review as brief as possible for each of the following: appearance; smell; taste; mouthfeel; and drinkability.

Appearance Adam: an alt should be, like a light cherry wood Bryan: medium-dark, copper color; tinge of redness Jeremy: Dark Reddish/Brown
Smell: Adam: sweet hoppy Bryan: mild, hop aroma; not itimidating; slightly sweet, but not too malty Jeremy: Sweet smelling
Taste Adam: less hoppy than hop devil, sour, lingering bitterness :-) Bryan: clean, malt flavor plus mild bitter hop flavor; nicely balanced Jeremy: Smooth and crisp with a bit of hoppiness
Mouthfeel Adam: substantial Bryan: solid; lingers just long enough Jeremy: It went into my mouth, then into my tummy, and felt good in both places... ie I have no idea how to describe mouthfeel ;-)
Drinkability Adam: oh yeah Bryan: could become a favorite "session beer"! (ha, even at 8.5%?!) Jeremy: Very drinkable despite the decievingly high ABV
Seconds? Adam: yes please Bryan: a full case and enjoy now! Jeremy: I would have ordered another, but I had to drive
