4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Draught at Plan B, 20 years old (1989 apparently), last keg!
Cloudy red-amber color; small head.
Delicate aroma of ripe raspberries, vanilla, flowery cologne, talcum powder. It has a medium body strength; perfect blend of residual sweetness and sourness, with a fresh fruity touch, sweet raspberries in the front and just more aggressive lemon at the end, candies.
After such harmonius flavor, by contrast the palate is more coarse, with citrus tartness and a light obvious astringency.
Perfect. Amazing how it can keep the balance after so many years.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Small sample from Plan/B , Copenhagen who had a single keg of this. Though the sample was very little I remember the taste and feel quite well. Extremely muddy orange with a small white head. Lots of wood with sour and fresh raspberries. Some caramel, fruit and a good deal of tartness and oak. Smooth and medium palate. Amazingly fresh and top notch considering this is probably 20 years old.
