Thx. to Gene for this one // 375 ml. bottle, caged with a plastic cork // love the design on these bottles, simple but... these guys really know marketing // bottled 29.01.2010 // bottle nr. 2954/3200 // red malty brown, little in the way of head // smells sweet, candy, candied fruits, caramel, candy sugar, clearly affected somewhat by age // taste has definetly been affected by age, muted, time hasn’t been kindly to AB’s, these should be drank fresh by what I can tell, this feels way older than 2 years, sweet dark fruits, plenty of aged fruits, caramel, sweet malts, plenty of brown and candy sugar, touch vanilla, there is some serious sugar in this, still remnants of hops in the end // light thinned out // if you still have bottles of this, drink them as fast as you can

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle no 581 from Utobeer. Clear copper, big and lacing offwhite head. Complex fruity aroma, slightly vinous. Fruit, some raisins, and caramel flavours. The vanilla beans only give a small impact. Good, but probably overrated.
