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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel.
Pours a rather clear coppery with a nice, but small creamy white head that rather quickly turns to a staying thin film. Aroma is a little mouldy, lidt biscuity maltiness and a good dose of spicy hoppiness. Dry mouthfeel, perhaps a touch on the thin side. Flavour is dominated by lightly roasted caramel, some oakiness and a well-balanced spiciness.

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.
