FatPhil (13254) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 19, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2012 500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Mellow sweet woody bitter aroma. A touch buttery. Gently hoppy bite. Lovely smooth palate, woody but sweet too. Classic aged fullers taste. Woody and malty, and so darn mellow. Not saying whisky so much, but there is a gentle warming vapour in the mouth. Great beer.
Rating from the soured cask at EBF2008 has been scrapped completely as it was not as the brewer intended.
Rerate: 500ml bottle (Alko, Arkadia) - 2012-07, BB2011
Massively raisiny and cognacy. A bit thinner then when young, but it poured with a huge head, so clearly there’s been a lot of 2nd/3tiary fermentation. Some tobacco, dry, and walnut-papery. Perhaps not quite as good as fresh, but still very very tasty.

chibuck (3509) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2011

Bottle at Caspars Vilntage Vertical. Dark hazy red colour, very fine light head. Musky leather nose with a hint of bitter butter. Smooth sweet vinegar taste and fluid mouthfeel. Not grand but ok.
