3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2010 bottle from late ’06 ..burnt caramel look, and some in the nose with some soy.. light smoke.. pretty full- great covering .. a decent brew, and not overdone .. good abv .. .. The point is, how do you know the fairy isn’t a crazy glue sniffer? "Building model airplanes" says the little fairy; well, we’re not buying it. He sneaks into your house once, that’s all it takes. The next thing you know, there’s money missing off the dresser, and your daughter’s knocked up. I seen it a hundred times.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2010 Bottle from Immy. Abrazame muy fuerte!
Pours a nice, thin-from-aging maple syrup brown. Light body that only reveals a head along the edge of the sniffer glass. Aroma is a medely of peach and orange marmalade, candied oak, woody pear, and diluted apple juice. Flavor is a peach/grapefruit Kool-Aid with sweet syrup stored in a dusty oak container. Nice, lingering mouthfeel. A very nice late night treat. Después de acabar esta cerveza, gritaré cariñosamente en la noche de modo que usted viniera a mí.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Side by side pour with regular Millenium. Pours orange/amber, lighter than the original, with slight off white head. The aroma is much smoother hop and malt blending, and the taste is a much cleaner hop that gives way to a nice smooth sweet malt character that is tart because of the oak. Awesome beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz painted bottle shared by Gregis. Bottled on 111706 stamped on the label. Pour is hazed orange ruby amber with a very minimal off white head. Nice lacing for a beer without much head. Aroma of initial sweet caramel maltiness, followed quickly behind by a dry dusty sherry - nice but a touch oxidized with quite a bit of cardboard showing through. Taste is the nose, caramel sweet malts, followed by dusty oxidized cardboard minor sour earthiness. Palate is medium, the oxidized cardboard nature thins it out a little bit. Really no alcohol present. Nice stuff, thanks for sharing this one Greg.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from sloth in trade... A twist off !??!! OK, That aside. Pours a semi muddled brown/amber with the thinnest of head. Very drinkable from star tto finish. Mellow realy does not touch the unstated evil that lurks in this liquid. Nose must be pulled from the snifter. 11.4% are you mad? Certainly does not seem that way to me... Body is well rounded and slick. Nose is caramel and lots of it. Full mouthfeel does not overpower. Finish is slow and pleasant...hops twinkle over basement earthy tones. Nice....

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. [thank you, madmitch76]
Pours lovely orange amber with a small, frothy, yellowish head. Fat toffee aroma, roasted caramel, vanilla-like oak notes, light strawberry sweetness. Low carbonation, great oily mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of caramel, light earthy and citrusy hops. A tad vinious, lovely oak flavours. Relatively sweet, still. Fine flavouring hops - perhaps they should just have added a tad more to bittering. Otherwise top-quality.
