Stamp says HRT 2015.
Appearance: The body is a murky chestnut, opaque, with a thin tan head that quickly settles into a creamy ring.
Aroma: Bright cherry, mild vinegar, slight oak and sweet apple, hints of alcohol are apparent.
Taste: Very mild intro of muddy malts, some cocoa. This leads to a strong apple and oak mid-flavor which is on top of a semi-sweet raspberry that goes through to the finish along with some tanins creating a semi-dry finish. This isnít nearly as bright or enticing as the aroma.
Palate: Medium bodied, very low in carbonation, pretty much flat.
Overall: Be wary this is the largest gusher Iíve ever had. I canít imagine how the cap stayed on or the bottle didnít explode. Once the cap was popped the beer was a fountain. I lost half of the bottle. Probably for the best because this isnít very good anyway. Iím just glad the beer didnít get on my electronics...

gEUS (890) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle tasted at home. Taken from notes. Pours deep amber brownish with a huge head (bottle was gushing as well). The high carbonation hides some most of the aromas and flavours, which are malt, raisins, some apple, madeira touch. Pity of the high CO2.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2012 Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a small tan head that fades somewhat quickly over a hazed deep bronze hued body. Aromas are a bit of ethyl acetate, acetone, vinous, brandy, apple, bready, grainy and lightly floral with a good shot of alcohol. Flavors are mildly sour, vinous, light vinegar, ethyl acetate, brandy, barrel. Medium dry and warming with low carbonation.
On tap at Stone with the same numerical score. Pours with a very murky deep brown hued body with a lasting khaki head of foam that fades to a ring. Aromas are musty and big, lots of barrel, brandy, dark fruits, chocolate, dusty, sherry, raisins, apple brandy and soil. VERY BOOOOOZZZZZYYYY. Flavors are boozy, fudge, chalky, chocolate, barrel, apple, musty, fusel, raisins. Vinous and boozy. Thinner mouthfeel, medium bubbles, warming, dry and intense. Calvados and low tannin. Rich.
