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.
