Bottle Chris O’s . Vintage 1992. Aroma: oxidised fruit with strong notes of sherry and bourbon and caramel malts. Tatse is a lot less alcohol with a nice balance of malt and fruit.

Bottle at chris_o’s woo woo yea yea tasting. Alround rating: Thin due to the age of the bottle(about 10yrs?) oxidation is key, sherry, brown ale malts are still there. Good stuff alround.

SilkTork (5252) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2008
Chris_os GBBF Shindig 08. 275ml bottle from Shropshire. Vintage 1993. This beer is one that is often cited in books as an example of British Brown Ale, and so I was very pleased to discover this in my Shropshire hoard. Unfortunately it hasn’t stood up as well as some of the other vintage Brown Ales that I’ve had. It was smooth and sweet and pleasant - but also slightly watery and with an unbalanced oxidization. OK, but not the classic I was hoping for.

A Mes rate: Bottle at Chris Os Pre GBBF Tasting
Very dark red brown with a strong red hue. The head is long gone due to age. Chocolate malt with lots of caramel and some heavy oxidisation. The flavour has not held up quite so well as the aroma but it’s still very drinkable.

oh6gdx (20821) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2008
Bottled. Deep brown colour, small head. Aroma is madeiraish sweetness along with some mild notes of roasted malts and mild caramelly notes. Flavour is much the same along with lots of vanilla kicking in. Lovely aging/oxidization.

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2008
Unclear brown with tiny head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, prunes plums and somewhat oxydized. Sweet flavor with caramel and plums. Ends sweet.
