3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber with an offwhite head. Aroma is great from exotic fruits, a clear maltiness with vanilla and actually some strawberries. Nutty notes and some almond. Flavor is malty, but I find the alcohol too strong to rate this a top beer.

Bottle. [thank you, Ungstrup]
[at Yesprs tuesday tasting]
Pours lightly red-orange with a fine, creamy, yellowish head. Fine lacing. Aroma is light hoppy, some chocolate, good fat toffee. Super creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has soft port, vinious, light chocolate and a pleasant dose of hops. Super balance, and that chocolate note is truly wonderful.

Bottle split at Craft Beer Clerko, 08/07/13, massive thanks to Fin for gifting me this one. #34840.
Murky amber orange with a thin beige head that dissipates edgeward leaving a film.
Nose is woody, walnuts, dark fruits, sugars, dates, slightly dank and musty, light oxidisation.
Taste comprises mellow vanilla notes, dark fruits, tobacco, dates, prunes, sugars, leather, nutty tones.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate.
This has held up really well some 11 years on - pleasing as Iíve had some duds from the older vintages in the past.
