4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2013 Bottle at Casparís Running Toilet Tasting. Pours rich, amber-red with a small, white head. Dark fruits, caramel and mild oxidation in the aroma. Great flavor, fairly mellow but with some kick at the edges. Notes of cake, rich caramel, toasty sugar, leather, and fig. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish, dark sugars, caramel, leather, dark fruits. Lovely beer. The age has done it well. (4.3)
Had another bottle that was shared at CBC Clerkenwell - London. The beer is still damn good. Solid. (4.2)

Botella. Pours an unclear red-amber colour. Sweet malty aroma with dark fruits and some toffee. Good soft mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet with toasted malt, a bit of chocolate, some dark fruits, some port and a little alcohol. A good well balanced brew.

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.
