3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2014 Quite fruity and light for this kind of beer. Some burnt caramel and quite malty, not too sweet, light bitter. Nice, but not very special. Mouthfeel is the weakest part. A bit watery.

Bottle at home 6.5%. Very dark brown with light bitten head and lots of lacing. Raisins, figs, some milk chocolate, old fruit skins, dried out red wine, a bit dusty, old coffee dregs. Quite a lot of ’old’ notes mixed with dried fruits and sugary aromas. Under medium sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied with a bit slick feel and soft carbonation.

Mörkbrun ale med stabilt gräddigt vitt skum. Lätt arom av malt och torkad frukt. Lätt sötma och toner av dadel, fikon i smak. God, lite starkare belgisk brown ale men lite tunn smak.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy copper color, tall tan head.
Intense rusty nose.
Full body, bright mouthfeel, moderate but adequately strong flavor, heat and carbonation, great balance, lingering palate with a delucious finish.
Moderately sweet, enough bitterness and acidity to reach a perfect balance.
Roasty, coffee, malty, yeasty, creme brulé, earthy.
Considering that the sample I tasted was 4 years beyond its Drink By date, its an exceptional beer. Very easy drinking.

Aroma: caramel, toast, gentle roasty, toffee, dough, very gentle herbs, some esters (surprising), raisins. Interesting, well balanced.
brown, hazy, white foam, good retention.
light sweetness, lightly bitter, raisins, roast, caramel, toffee, again some esters. Well balanced, but expected more depth.
medium body, slick feel, average carbonation, short sweetish finish.
Overall nicely balanced and quite pleasant, but could use a little less sweetness and more depth.
