Tasting Notes: this beer has a perfumy, malt driven aroma very similar of aged barley wine

This beer really reminds me of a dark, roasty barley wine. Very floral, perfumy, alcohol backed aroma, sweet on the pallete initially, then roasty and bitter going down....very, very nice beer. I brewed this back in April and am just starting to enjoy it now. I have a feeling it is going to get better and better......pacman yeast brought his down to 1.016. I think the nice low final gravity, really differentiates this beer from some sweeter, thicker, almost syrup like examples I have tasted. THe key to that is the pacman yeast, nutrient and huge oxygen and pitch rates.
