BMan1113VR (7854) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 20, 2009
2003 bottle thanks to Lumpy. Pours with a fluffy tan head over a clear orange body. Good retention from the head. Aroma of raisins, fig, alcohol, caramel, banana (in a sort of fusel alcohol way, not yeasty esters), toffee and melon. Taste is hugely sweet with raisin, and cardboard oxidation. Caramel too. Syrupy mouthfeel.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Bottle thanks to Lumpy. Pours a murky amber with off-white head. Aroma of malt and perhaps some maple. Flavor is sweet malt, alcohol, spicy, also I think some maple and some cardboard, it has become oxidized. Mouthfeel is full body and low carbonation. Overall, not bad after all these years....

Well I actually found this at Oliver T’s buried on a shelf covered in dust. 5 years old! this is either gonna be a wonderful find or a waste of green. Poured hazy copper/orange in to my snifter. almost no head. overly sweet citrus and hops...slight raison. OK...here we go...slight hops and raisons....although the sweetness isnt there like I expected...very good finish. no traces of alcohol. I think this has been aged a little too long. I would love to try it fresh...even 2-3 years old would be good...isnt bad though I think past its peak flavor. A good find none the less.

Bottle generously shared by footbalm, thanks man! Bottled in 2003, drank in 2008. Pours a cloudy apricot color with a medium white head. The aroma is very nice; tons off sweet candies, candied fruits and some brown sugar. The flavor is also quite sweet; lots of fruits; passionfruit and mango, lots of toffee, caramel, and other sweet sugar based goodies. Some slight oxidation and a hint of bitter hops in the finish. As others have said this is much like a nice barleywine. Very nice. The aging has done some good things.
