3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

No. 64042. Aroma has toffee, notes of dark fruits, perhaps a bit of citrus, and it does seem dusty. Hazy orange amber color with a beige head that didn’t last long. Full bodied with fine, almost fizzy, carbonation. The flavor is bread, toffee, light fruits, dark fruits, and a bit of roasted malt. Although it drinks just a bit sweet, after the liquid is gone it finishes rather astringent and dry. Has an interesting drying effect on the mouth. The hop seems to have mellowed out, but there’s enough to balance. Even seems to have a bit of wood as the event proceeds. It has certainly aged quite well. Shame. My last one.

Bottle at Caspar’s 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 ’staleness’ that isn’t altogether a bad thing. Has surprising kick given the age. Nowhere nearly as mellow as 2002-2006. Quite a departure from the other years.
