aroma is quite strong, but i have a har dtime figuring what it is. probably due to aging.
flavor is mostly caramel, dark fruits, nice hops, sugar.
palate is a little too watery
overall interesting and quite tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle from 1989) Pours dark brown. The aroma is “old” smelling with port/vinous tones of brown sugar, raisins, soy and dark bread. A smooth roast profile of dark chocolate is also present. The flavour is of chocolate, mild coffee, dark fruits, dark berries and some milky tones. The mouthfeel is watery but surprisingly clean. Lingering aftertaste of dark bread and coffee. Light bodied.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
1996 vintage complete with its bottle opener courtesy of omhper. Pours a dark brown with almost no carbonation to speak of. Only a handful of sparse white bubbles dot the glass. Smells of dark fruit, caramel, some roasted malt lots of oaky hints. Tastes of dark fruit, completely flat carbonation wise with only some tingly hints on the tongue which is no surprise on a 12 year old bottle, lots of sweet malt, some cherries. This is a 5.5% beer that is 12 years old? Impressive!

(33 cl bottle) Vintage 1989. On March 14, 2008.
Very dark brown color, small brown head. Sweet, raissin, sugar, honey, mead, vinous, fruity scent. Smoke, sweet, honey taste. Roasted and sweet licorice aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Guess this is a bit too old, would be interesting to try the 1996 version now.
33 cl bottle, 1987 vintage.
Thanks to deft!

Darl copper color with lots of particles, small white head. Raissin, vinous, alcohol taste. Medium to a bit thin mouthfeel, low bitterness. Sugary and alcohol aftertaste. Too old I’d say.
