4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
55cl bottle. Bottle nr. 14775. Pours dark amber/brown with a small creamy white head and lacings. Nose is deep malty and complex. Lots of dark fruits, caramel, bread, toffee and vanilla. Oily, smooth and full bodied. A lot like a vintage Port Wine. Vinous, well aged. Vague notes of cellar and dust. A true sipper. Warming, smooth and just delicious.

Bottle at Kookfest 06. Hazy chestnut, lasting beige. I do like the hop on this. Quite soft in mouth. Creamy and then harsh hop on end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 55cl. Bottle # 02056. A light copper to amber colored beer, pouring clear, and topped by a minimal sized off-white head. The aroma has some oxidation and alcohol, as well as caramel, dried fruits and a little camphor touch. Nice bitterness in the flavor, along with caramel, oxidation, some camphor and a faint mint touch. Full-bodied, smooth and lightly warming on the palate, and with a lasting finish. Certainly in good condition even though itís more than 12 years since its release. 120106

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2005 (Bottle No: 67684) Pours a beautiful deep mahogany color with a medium-sized white head. Very smooth, almost like a fine barley wine, with cream, carmel and malt flavors. Very good!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rich, malty, & liqueur-ish. The fuggles lend good balance. Some fruitiness, caramel sweetness, and some vanilla(?). Iíve gotta get me another bottle and stash it away for aging.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Yes! Quite a surprise when I saw this at ōlbaren in Copenhagen... Anticipation was high, and I was not disappointed! Pours a hazy reddish amber with a little creamy head. It eds up as a thin film with thicker foam along the sides of the glass. If you turn the glass, the remaining head sticks a little to the glass, but soon ends up back on top of the beer. Aroma is stunning. Plums and prunes give it a sherry feel. Flavours are wonderful as well. A malty sweetness and quite vinious. Caramel, plums, hops, oak, some vanilla and lots of sherry tones. Stunning!
