Opened #2246. WOW!!! First aroma I got was a hint of whiskey. A second sniff was malt. Appearance is an orange amber with good carbonation and a thin long lasting head. Lots of flavors here. I first got a sweet raisin taste, then the hops then the bitter. Aftertaste was good, very subtle and enjoyable. It left my lips a bit sticky and warmed me up all the way down. I currently have one more bottle I will let age for another year or so, and plan on buying more as I have access to about 20 more bottles. I reccomend this one. It's worth the $6.99 I paid for it .

Deep amber with a light head, smells like pure caramel with oxidation, Taste is much the same. For an 11 year old beer this had held up pretty wel

Not bad. I was hoping for a little better based on the buzz about the 1999 vintage. Itís a tad strong, and feels more like whiskey when you drink it, but all in all, a good pint.

Bottle #03931 - Deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma is very sweet/malty with emphasis on alcohol. Mellow sweet malts and toffee from the start with King Alcohol dominating the middle, esters making a strong showing as well. The stong alcohol presence is a distraction to the great malt flavor, though with time it should subside. The more I drink the more it rounds out - a sumptuous beer with balls.

This year is going to be a winner after another three years in the celler. Strong start, Warming on the tongue and in the tummy. A little rough in the middle and a drop off on the finish. All this is going to improve with age. The aroma alone is worth the price on the bottle. I am going to keep a couple in the fridge and a couple at cellar temp and report back on which came out best.
