3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from 2003 (Best before feb. 2004). Brown body and a light brown and creamy head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and basement aromas. Most of the dry chocolate from the young days is gone. The taste is heavy sweet and has a bitter finish - not strong enough to balance the sweetness. Medium body, creamy and sticky texture.

Bottled. Deep ammbery brown colour with mediumsized beige fluffy head. Leaves some lace. Aroma is caramel malts, mild roasted notes as well as grass and some liquorice and chocolate. Flavour is quite much the same in a bit more complex way than the aroma. Pleasant to drink.

Aroma, malty with some grassy notes, caramel and chocolate.
Flavor definitely had an aged profile, lots of good malty yum and roast. Some lactose sweetness, caramel with chocolate, hints of spices and dark sugar.

This 2003 vintage is courtesy of TheCheeseMan, thanks again Dan! It pours mahogany with tan head. The aroma is rich milk chocolate to go along with a thin ribbon of caramel. It smells a bit like a chocolate milk shake, YUM! The flavor is ushered in with one of the creamiest mouth feels I can remember. It brings in delicious notes of milk chocolate, some dark chocolate and creamy caramel. Wow, this has aged wonderfully and is tastes great.
