3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle with thanks to coyotehunter. Pours a hazy orange with little head but lots of bubble clinging to the glass. Smells a little of oranges and malt with no oxidation. Flavor has a bit of butter and papaya. This is fairly sweet and a little sticky. Seems to have lost a bit of its flavor but show little other signs of age.

Bottle obtained in a trade with <a

The aroma was of dark fruits, some caramel, earthy malts, some butterscotch and brown sugar. The flavour is malty, some gingerbread, rye, caramel, molasses, figs and plums. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes lingering, quite smooth. Still holding up very well after all these years.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle shared at columbus tasting 7 - Pours amber with a short offwhite head. Aromas of caramel, with remnants of what must have at one point been decent hops because I was amazed that they were still there. I got some definite citrus in the aroma. Flavor is caramel, grapefruit and a good amount of spice at the finish. Medium body with slight carbonation. My guess is this one has seen better days but it is still quite drinkable.
