6 oz. sample poured into a snifter. Pours a hazy amber with a small off white head. Ther aroma was mainly sweet caramel malt, alcohol, and fruit. The flavor had a huge malt presence. Sweet caramel, vanilla, fruit, and a hint of the alcohol. This one has become more barleywine like. Sweet, smooth, and syrupy. No hoppy bitterness at all. It would make for a decent sipper as the weather cools.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Bottle from Shigadeyo that I shared at RBSG. Ross is a self appointed rating god, I am going to rate this because he does not believe in rating vintage beers. Pours reddish amber with an off white head. Nice sweet and boozy aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation and very slight syrupy texture. Flavor of caramel and butterscotch, with a tinge of cinnamon. Hops have pretty much faded, leaving this beer very sweet and malty beer. Sort of like a lighter barleywine.

Hudspart (538) - Byron Center, Michigan, USA - APR 20, 2008
Bottle: Pours orangish red with a small head. Aroma of cinnamin and hops. Alcohol is easy to detect. Not bad.

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - MAR 27, 2008
22oz bottle from deftim13. Shared with deftim13, WeeHeavy, bikesandbeers, Sean, and Brad. I think this bottle may be 4 years old. Very mellow. Hops have faded. Lots of melanoidins. Past it’s peak, but still very nice. No oxidation. 3.4, but I add 0.1, because of it’s age.

pintsize (1042) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2008
3-2-08 bottle (4 years aged) shared at tasting thanks to Humulone Red!!
Cloudy orange yellow with thin head and some lacing. Smell is sweet and metallic. Warm hoppy flavor with some alcohol in the taste too. Mouthfeel is smooth and pretty decent. A bit "hot" for me but I am glad I got to try it. Thanks Charles!

bottle generously shared by HumuloneRed
Pours a cloudy orange color with a light offwhite head. Smell is creamy and faintly hopped butterscotch sweetness. Taste is similar with still a surprisingly hopped flavor after all this time to complement the butterscotch like creamy malt character. Seems to have held up pretty well.

oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2008
4 Years Old: I think my glass may have been contaminated or something, but whatever. Metallic and spice aroma some sweet fruit. Pours a cloudy orange, heavily carbonated, bubbly thin creamy head. Metallic flavor, some cherries, and hop presence. Palate is interesting, smooth, chewy, with a bitter dry finish. I need to try is fresh maybe. ::shrug::

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Tasted 2/18/08. 22oz bomber. Dark ruby hue and clear. Off-white head. Aromas of raisins, port and spices. Musty bready and cinnamon. Grassy piney hops and a noticeable alcohol burn. Tasted at cellar temperature. Full bodied with a good mildly lengthy burn. Fudgy viscous palate. Definite alcohol presence. Graham crackers and a touch cocoa. Mild acidity with a rolling sticky palate. Dark fruit and a dry finish. Mildly woody. Touch anise and pepper. The seconf glass was heavily sedimented and more of a yeasty citrus perfumy nose. Citrus toffee juxtaposition. Good yeast character. Good and good drinking. Aged well. Apples and tart citrus fruit and sweet malts. Not quite full dimensional.
