Bottle at Casparís Running Toilet Tasting. Pours rich auburn with a foamy, off-white head. Strong leather nose, some dark fruit, slight tang. Quite a sweet flavor with palpable oxidation, robust leather, slight must, candied fruits, and toasted sugar. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish with a bit more sting than even younger vintages, lingering leather, some tangy fruits, a slight ístalenessí that isnít altogether a bad thing. Has surprising kick given the age. Nowhere nearly as mellow as 2002-2006. Quite a departure from the other years.

Fin (7616) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2011
Bottle purchased from the brewery website & consumed with Trev 17.06.11 Pours mid amber a touch hazy with a white head. This is surprisingly soft on the tongue, there is some warmth permeating through the mouth, a bitterness remains throughout. Some dark dried fruits, there is a touch of oxidisation otherwise it is still remarkably good. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9

Bottle. Bought directly from the brewery in 2011 with a best before date of 2003. Sweetness dominates and it isa bit one dimensional.Slightly cloudy and quite powerful.Nice but not as good as I had anticipated. An expensive treat.

Christian (11260) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2010
Amber with a small tan head. Malty aroma of biscuit and caramel with some marmalade. Dusty oxidized cardboard notes. Sweet malty flavour with strong marmalade fruity note, and bitter finish. Clearly too old, or not aged well.

Cloudy mahogany with a huge beige head. Sweet flavour with overripe fruits, slightly oxydized, roasted malt, caramel and hints of hops. The slightly oxydized flavour had roasted malt, caramel, overripe fruits, hops and toffee. Finished dry and bitter. Not bad.
