imdownthepub (10574) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2010
Bottle conditioned, 500ml, aged obviously. Tawny to brown with light head. After battling to and from work in deep snow on foot, I was ready for this beauty, and it didnít let me down. rich, port like flavours from the start, rounded and fruity with raisins and sultanas, there were no rough edges at all. Great stuff, looking forward to the other vintages now.

bierkoning (10485) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber color. Still pours a surprisingly steady head. Sherry, sewer and lemon in the aroma. Medium bodied, still. Alcoholic. Sherry and raisin. Powdery mouthfeel. Still some remaining hopbitterness. Almost whisky-like. Has kept very well, better as the 2002. Still lively and in shape.

madsberg (10413) - SÝborg, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2004
Bottled: Fantastic clear amber colour. Lasting off white head. Fruits, malt, spices and a somewhat chocolatish aroma. Vanilla, fruits (plums), alcahol and a kind of sherry flavour. Very pleasant. This is much better and more subtle than the 1997 version I've tried. Smooth and pleasant. Has a dry fruity finish with pleasant alcahol accents. Is long lasting on the palate. Very good one.

Botella. Bottle # 06684. Nice bit golden amber colour with a medium white ehad leaving a fair lacing. Sweet and malty caramel fruity aroma. Good soft mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet like a nice port with some alcohol, caramel, toasted malt and dark fruits. Well complexed brew.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
This vintage 1999 is bottle No. 21752 and I drink it in May 2006 - so itís 6Ĺ years old by now. The color is deep amber with a beautiful red hue, the head is huge and golden. The aroma is malty and sweetish with notes of caramel and fruity hops. The moutfeel is oily. The flavour is sweetish, vinous with notes of roasted malts, caramel, raisin and other fruits. It has a nice bitterness, and a hint of alcohol, that I would have thought should be gone by this age. Itís a really nice beer, but not one of the very best....

Bottle at Falling Rock poured a lightly hazy copper with a small ring of an amber head. Aromas of cherries, carmel, prune and a hint of nuts. Palate waslight to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of cherry, carmel, prune, vanilla, light chocolate and a hint of nuts with a crisp lingering bittersweet finish.

BeerandBlues2 (9984) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Many thanks to my summer SecretSanta for this gem. Pours a hazy mahagony with a small, slight tan head, edgy with some patches on top and lined to spotty lacing. Aroma is huge floral hops, caramel and maple malt (cookie, biscuit), yeast (dough) and fragrant flowers and fruit (earthy raisins, apricot). Medium candied caramel malt sweetness at the onset, medium to moderate acidity and bitterness in the middle with some alcohol burn and tinging floral hops, fruit at the end. Full bodied and warm, fizzy and slightly dry palate.
