3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl. 2005 vintage. It’s a more or less clear one, amber in color and with a dense, light beige head leaving lacings. The aroma has some caramel and oxidation, a touch of something herbal and peppery, and with prunes. The flavor has some caramel maltyness and a spiced touch, it’s dry on the palate, and with a nice bitterness. Full to medium body and a nice carbonation level. Long, dry, caramel finish with a good bitterness. A pretty nice one, easy drinkable too. 140301

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The pour is amber in color with a tall, tan head. A light tartness of lemon on the nose followed by some pepper and spicy coriander notes. Caramel sweetness is also there along with some white grape. The flavor is a touch boozy with some strong grape flavor, a hint of spice, and rather intense caramel. Not as bad as some of the series, but not as good as others, either.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle at Fantome-a-thon 2012.
Pours dark brown, moderately hazy, very little head but still carbonated. This tastes like grapes, candy, a touch of roasted malt, chocolate, and a bit of oxidation. The best description I heard all night was "carmelized grapes" which is spot on. Not a favorite.
