500 ml bottle thanks to Eric bottle number 11002. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. The aroma is some oxidation, dusty dry caramel and a light English hop. The flavor is very mellow, bready, caramel and sweet port like notes, grassy almost. Hasnít held up perfectly like the 1999 did, but still nice.

Bottle, thanks SÝren.
Had this after 1997, 1999 and 2000.
Pours hazy orange, practically no head. Aroma has light metallic oxidation, caramel, toffee, viniousness, light berries. High carbonation, nice dry mouthfeel. Flavour has caramel, dryness, fairly bitter, softly roasted malts, liqourice, some herbal notes and a bit of oxidation. Long, lingering light bitterness with a hint of milky chocolate. Fine.
