Bottle 3967. Cloudy brown beer, thick off white head. Toffee, tea and aged malt on the nose. Light dry palate. Rich tea and toffee malt. Clearly very aged - some chocolate underneath and a bare whisper of hop in the finish which is pretty dry. Clearly aged and past itís best but still worth a try.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Aarhus, 2008.
[my 300th English brew!]
Pours clear dark red-brown with a medium, frothy/creamy head that is a slight yellow in colour. Aroma is very lightly oxidized, wonderful toffee notes, grainy chewy malts and a little apples and black currants. Super, creamy and oily mouthfeel - fair carbonation. Flavour has port, oak, vinious, overripe fruits - and a fair cellar note that still hasnít taken over. This was probably a good time to try this vintage (even in the rarer white box). Wonderful - and by far the next-best Vintage (folleing the 1999).
