3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared with drsordr and Corey. Pours a slightly hazy dark caramel brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have quite a bit of oxidation at this point that works pretty well with the sweet malts, caramel, and fruit character in the beer. I had this a few years back, more in its prime and it was a different beer, I still could drink this, but it is a different beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours murky, unclear dark amber brown with a tan head. Aroma brings some aged tangy yeast and malts, but pleasant and a bit of sweetness comes from the tang. The flavor brings aged, zesty yeast as well. Unfortunately it has been oxidized a bit, but is still good.
