pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2010
Bottle from bbb63... Pours much similar to 1999 but overall with a much nod to caramely malt and not as complex as the 1999... Flavorwise are much of the same without as much of layers in the malt profile. Again a little thin but to be expected.
