750ml bottle, caged and corked. Not much ’pop’ when the cork came out. Poured a clear ruddy orange color. Some lace was left on the glass at the end. The head was only one finger high, but hung around for a while. Smelled of hay, cured meat, brown sugar, and cola. Medium to full bodied and sweet. Caramel, toffee, hay, and clove flavors.

750ml Vintage Bottle from (2005)???. Caged & Corked with the old Colorado address on the label. The bottle was in the fridge at my parent’s basement. I had been saving it for a special occasion, for it being so pricey. Today is just a day.
Pours a deep copper color. Creamy light tan colored head. The beer seems to have some pretty decent legs to it. Aroma seems to be a bit soured. Fruity and deep malts. Hints of tart fruit like a raspberry. Lots of sticky malts. Lots of clove. A decent presence of toasted malt in the nose. Flavor has a slight tartness to it. Not what I was expecting. Quite a bit of cherry flavors and a nice roasted malt flavor as well. Distant chocolate malt, dark fruits, dates, and some more tartness as it warms. A bit of alcohol is present along with a fairly sticky / oily body. I am kinda surprised the bottle lasted as long as it has. As it warms, the malt backbone become much more pronounced. Not great, definitely impressive. <p/>
