chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2011
Vintage, accidentally (as in “where did that come from”) “cellared”, 500ml bottle. Drunk at home after Great British Beer Festival, day 3, on 4 August 2011. Amber colour. Good fluffy white head. Still plenty of life. The hops have faded (obviously) but the biscuity malts have held up well and the mouthfeel remains firm. Not too much oxidation. In fact it has held up rather well altogether. Flagged for re-rate though.

FatPhil (9346) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 28, 2011
500ml bottle (ChrisO’s post-GBBF2011, Thursday) BB2006
Huge raisiny malt aroma. Very smooth, and holding up very well after 5+ years. All hops have faded apart from a simple dry bitterness that leaves a dry nutty tingle in the finish. Past its best, but still respectable.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 18, 2010
Pours copper with an off white head. Smells of light citrus, some earthy undertones. Tastes of citrus, some peppery hints, some floral notes on the finish. Enjoyable.

joe19612 (1844) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle from ASDA. Poured a real dark amber colour with a smooth fruity and hopped aroma. The flavour is slightly hoppy with a touch of caramel, and the finish is dry and fruity. Overall a really good beer.
