Bottled 2003 vintage: Dark red/brown coloured.Light brown medium sized head. Buttery, light roasted and coffeish aroma. A little vague for my likings. Chocolate, roast and coffee in the flavour. The roastyness last till the end. The beer is a little dry and insipid. Had it cellered for approx. 1,5 year.

The pour is brown in color with a small tan head. Some roast malt, dark fruit, and a hint of coffee come through first on the nose. A bit dusty and oxidized. Quite a lot of dark fruit, especially prunes. The flavor is fairly simple. Some roasted malt, chocolate, and tons of dark fruit.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2007 courtesy of Domtom; 2005 vintage sampled 2/2007 - very dark ruby-brown, well almost black colour; the little foam doesn’t last for long; fairly toasty with robust notes of cocoa; quite full-bodied, fine effervesence; the sweetness is partially balanced by a tart bitterness; long toasty finish with notes of raisins and cocoa

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with Alice and Sander, NYC. Pours black-brown with a foamy, beige head. Some burnt dark sugar in the nose, a bit of smokey malts. Medium sweet flavor, some firewood, dark sugars, mild chocolate, some odd grass/plastic. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Modest roast and burnt grass and plastic and licorice. Kind of weird. Not altogether bad, but certainly different.
