2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle 75cl, thanks faroeviking.
this bottle best before 05.10.2007, tasted 10.01.2009.
pours a cloudy red amber with a large yellow/brown head that lasts but is fluffy. collapses after a minute or so.
aroma of aged beer, well balanced flavors, christmas spices, caramel, slight fruityness.
flavor is spicy, caramelly, sweet, sawdust, honey. i can taste the aging has done some damage, but mainly to the palate, and it has added some cellary notes.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle, corked and caged, from John’s Marketplace in Portland, OR. Label seems to indicate production in 2006. Excellent light mahogany color with a decent off-white head. Medium+ body with creamy carbonation. Aroma is sweetly bready with a touch of orange. Flavor is mild caramel with citrus zest in a mild way. It’s all very smooth. The finish is slightly sweet, but there is some bitter (could be orange zest). As time goes on, I imagine floral notes - could be orange florality. It’s a very nice ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber and moderate head. The aroma and flavour have notes of candy sugar, fruit, apple peel, and the flavour also has sweetness and citrus. Rather boring, when you think of the 2002 vintage. It had distinct notes of orange and Christmas Spice, that gave that little extra, that made it worth remembering IMO

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The pour is amber in color with a tall off-white head. Sweet caramel and toffee with a little bit of sugar. Lots of dark fruits on the nose, too. There is a touch of spice and maybe some apples. The flavor is fairly sweet. Mostly sugar with some caramel. A decent amount of dark fruits, especially raisins and plums. Not bad at all.
