3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’ve had this bottle since 2001 and thought I’d check it out after 12 years ageing. A brilliant orange coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Sour fruity aroma. Tastes slightly sour, citrus fruit, apples, zesty. This aged rather well, I have another bottle in the cupboard, might keep that for another 12 years.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2006 tasted in October 2008 thanks to Greg at Birreria Paradiso. Cloudy amber, thin pale head. Aroma of clove and orange. Smooth and mellow, like orange candy. Find this one and lay it down for a few years.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Courtesy of The_Beer_God at RB Richmond Gathering. Golden hazy with rocky moderatly persistent head. Carmel, honey and some cheese notes or top of some sour aromas. Sweet grainey malt with some alchohol warming then a peach/pear fruityness with a bit of carbonic bite from high carbonation. Very dry finish that ends with some alchohol warmth and peppery spiciness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - corked and capped. Amber pour. Small white head. Nose is funky, slightly sour with leather, bits of cheese, wood and sweat. Taste is more funky yeast notes, wood, overripe fruit, sweet malts, herbs and faint spice. Bubbly body with some dryness. Finish is more funky, yeast, light spice, mellow maltiness, wood and herbs. Again, afterwards, the sediment is shaken and poured into my glass. I get a hot chocolate looking appearance with green apples in the nose and a caramel covered green apple with the taste. Like before, this seems like a new beer once the sediment has been added.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Courtesy of The_Beer_God at the 6th Richmond Gathering. Appearance is lighter amber than the previously sampled BBB dark. Aroma and flavors are also quite similar, but this lacks the roasty notes. Drier, with a considerable amount of pepper. Dandelion notes as well. Didn’t like this version nearly as well, which surprised me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2008 Bottle courtesy of The_Beer_God. Thanks Mike! Pours pumpkin colored with a medium sized fast disappearing head. Sour aroma with notes of caramel and spice (thyme). Taste is a little underwhelming compared to the aroma, but still a very nice light funk and dark fruits. Very complex beer and very nice.
