3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Numbered 84055 (yes, the same one in the picture, as I took the picture). 1997 vintage, obviously. Murky ruby colored brown. Nose is raisins, caramel, sweet malts, light alcohol, and hints of cardboard. The aroma has most likely gone downhill as I canít imagine it smelling like it does now when fresh. Hopefully the taste is better. Taste is dry and pretty much pure raisins in the taste. Light caramel, hints of alcohol, rum, and maybe some brown sugar. Itís pretty oxidized. Body is smooth but dry with some chalkiness and light warmth. Finishes with more raisins, dark fruits, cardboard, alcohol, and light toffee. Not bad but past itís heyday.

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.
